This vegan whole roasted cauliflower is one of my favourite ways to cook cauliflower! It looks absolutely stunning, plus it's super easy to make and so delicious. Suitable to cook in the BBQ or in the oven. Gluten-free & keto friendly.



1 medium head cauliflower

1/2 cup EVOO

1 tsp cumin powder

1 tsp coriander powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp paprika

1/8 tsp turmeric

1 tsp mixed herbs

1 tsp salt

1 tsp ground pepper


Drizzle of coconut yogurt dressing

Drizzle of tahini sauce

Crushed almonds


  1. Preheat the BBQ or oven to 220 degrees Celsius.
  2. Add the EVOO and all the spices to a bowl and stir well to combine.
  3. Lay foil paper on a chopping board, and place the cauliflower on top.
  4. Carefully pour the EVOO & spices mix on top of the cauliflower and spread throughout with the hands. Making sure the entire surface is soaked on the mix – see video.
  5. Wrap the cauliflower with the foil paper, making sure there's no open areas.
  6. BBQ - Wrap the cauliflower with the foil paper and put inside the BBQ, placing the bottom of the cauliflower on top of the grill. Close the BBQ and let it cook for 20 minutes. Turn over and cook for another 10 minutes.
  7. Oven - put the cauliflower in the oven, and cook for 40 minutes.
  8. Remove the foil paper and place the cauliflower on a flat surface (plate or chopping board). Add a drizzle of coconut yogurt dressing, tahini sauce and crushed almonds.


  • Check the cauliflower 5 minutes before the stated cooking time as cooking time might vary depending on your BBQ/oven.
  • If you're after a crunchy/ al dente texture, reduce the cooking time by 5-10 minutes.
  • Play around with the spices you have. This recipe calls for a lot of spices and so many different combinations work great!
