Ingredients for Roasted Cauliflower Bowls

One of the things I love about these Mediterranean Cauliflower Bowls is how flexible the ingredients can be. Here’s what I like to use:

  • Vegetables: Cauliflower florets and sweet potatoes, cubed
  • Aromatics and Seasonings: olive oil, garlic cloves, ground turmeric, cumin, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper
  • For the bowls: sliced English or Persian cucumbers, diced avocados, crumbled feta cheese, salad greens, tzatziki sauce– while you can definitely buy store-bought sauce, it’s so incredibly easy to make your own like

How to Make Cauliflower Bowls with Greek Tzatziki

The first step in making these bowls are to roast the vegetables. This can be done just before serving, or even ahead and reheated.

Roasting the Cauliflower and Sweet Potatoes:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, turmeric, cumin, paprika, red pepper flakes and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  3. Spread the cauliflower and sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, drizzle with the seasoned olive oil and toss to coat. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are browed and tender.

Assembling the Bowls

Once the veggies are browned, roasted, and tender, let cool slightly and prepare the greens.

In these bowls, I like to serve the roasted cauliflower and sweet potatoes over romaine but any of your favorite greens work equally well.

Then I like to tuck in thinly sliced cucumbers and chopped avocado. After adding the roasted vegetables, I then top with tzatziki sauce and crumbles of salty and delicious feta.

Making Your Own Tzatziki Sauce:

As I mentioned earlier, most markets carry a ready-made tzatziki sauce. If you want to make your own, it’s incredibly easy! I like to make either 5 Minute Greek Tzatziki Sauce or 2 Minute Greek Dill Yogurt Sauce.
