Roasted Cauliflower and Radishes with Mustard seeds, Nigella, and Fennel Seeds

Roasted Cauliflower and Radishes with Indian Spices | Vegan Richa

This is one of the many cauliflower recipes in the book. It is super simple and a great side to serve with Indian or other cuisines. The subtle flavor from the roasted whole spices adds a wonderful profile to the roasted veggies. This recipe made a convert of both sets of my testers or family who were on the fence about either cauliflower or radish! Here is one of the quotes “My husband really doesn’t like Cauliflower, and he hates radishes but I begged him to try it and he couldn’t stop eating it! He just kept saying how amazing it was!!!”

Make one big helping! And then head on over to get your copy of my book :) Or if you have one already, pick up your free recipe bundle and other gifts! 

The last 2 weeks have been super fun. Meeting my brother in law (hubbs’ bro) and family after a decade, entertaining a very inquisitive 7 yr old and a smart 11 yr old and the book release! In a way I loved being so busy and in constant reactive mode with the kids around, else I might have spent my days obsessing over amazon ranks and things about the book. This was the first time I spent so much time with pre-teens and wow, they do keep you on your toes and learn technology so quickly! I had planned and scheduled a few posts before the visit and I like how that worked out. Bhabhi (sister in law) also cooked up some authentic Marwari (north central Indian regional) recipes and it was fun to see how she approaches similar veggies or beans dishes. Now, the house feels empty, i am missing Bhabhi’s hugs, and I am trying to get into the momentum to plan and develop recipes, plan the day, the blog and so on. I thought I would never say this, but I do miss the non stop chatter, even though, my nerves would get short by 8 or 9 pm! :).
