Roasted Cauliflower with Peanut Sauce

We love this healthy, vegetarian- and vegan-friendly spin on Indian food from the Gaiam Cafe: heavy on the veggies and spices, light on the oil and devoid of any animal products. Serve it as a side dish with chickpea masala and creamed spinach for a hearty, Indian-inspired meal.

Serves 4 to 6

Serves 4 to 6
