Roasted Cauliflower with Indian Barbecue Sauce

What you need: 

1 (2 pound) head cauliflower, cored, cut into 1" florets (about 8 cups)
4 tablespoons oil, divided
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, pressed or minced
1 1/4 cups ketchup
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon ground cumin
salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss cauliflower and 2 tablespoons oil in large bowl. Transfer to medium rimmed baking sheet. Roast until very tender, stirring occasionally, about 45 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons oil in small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add ginger and garlic and sauté for about 3 minutes. Add ketchup, soy sauce, sugar, and cumin.
3. Bring to boil, whisking to blend. Reduce heat to low and simmer barbecue sauce for 1 minute to blend flavors, whisking constantly. Take cauliflower out of the oven and transfer to large bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.
4. You can either toss the cauliflower with barbecue sauce. Or what I prefer is to dip the cauliflower bites into the sauce which makes it more fun to eat. Enjoy!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was amazing. I added a pinch of cinnamon and some brown sugar to the sauce and only put in a teaspoon of cumin. However; it was a fantastic combination. I will definitely make this again. Thank you!

Delicious. Although next time, I will lower the amount of cumin because that seems to be the dominant flavor.

This has become a staple for me..  I can't get enough cauliflower or anything that's "indian" flavored..  I usually use tomato paste instead of ketchup and add water..  Saute onion with garlic, then add soy sauce, a little brown sugar, and then the spices that I like..  I know I raved about this before..  But this deserves another kudos!

Very good. I only used 1 cup ketchup because I ran out. I ran out of soy sauce too so I topped of the 1/4 cup with Braggs.  I added green onion to roast with the cauliflower and I added some to the sauce. Very good this recipe is a keeper.

This was AMAZING! I divided the sauce recipe in half and that was more than enough, I also used half-ketchup and half tomato paste instead of just all ketchup. It was sooo good, exactly what I was in the mood for all week

so simple, yet delicious! I used a basting brush to coat my cauliflower so that I used less oil. I sprinkled the cauliflower with a bit of garlic powder, salt, and pepper while roasting. To make my BBQ sauce more hearty, I add about a 1/4 cup TVP while simmering it. I used about a cup of ketchup, 2 TB molasses, I subbed brown sugar for white sugar, ginger, and subbed about 1/4 cup tamari. I think it has a less overpowering taste than soy sauce. I would recommend getting more cauliflower because this dish gets eaten up so quickly.

This is my absolute favorite way to eat cauliflower! I needed all the sauce this time so scratch my last review that said to only make half... I must have had a small head of cauliflower last time.

Seems like this would be awesome if you used tamarind sauce instead of the ketchup. I'm excited to try it.

I thought this was really good... I only made half of the sauce and it was more than enough... I eyeballed everything as well... Way better than those cauliflower poppers everyone's so in love with! Thanx.

I made a half batch of the bbq sauce to slather on pan-fried tofu. I liked the ginger but thought the cumin was a little too strong. I can't wait to try it with some roasted cauliflower per the original recipe ... but I'll use less cumin next time.
