Roasted Cauliflower with Spiced Tomatoes

This content was last updated on December 17, 2019

Gobi Manchurian is a popular Indian dish that calls for deep-frying heavily-spiced cauliflower. This healthy makeover keeps the spice and flavorful sauce, but bakes the veggies instead of deep frying to keep calories lower. Cauliflower is a mild cruciferous vegetable; diets containing non-starchy veggies are linked to lower risk for certain cancers.
