Turmeric-Roasted Cauliflower

Note: the recipe calls for garnishing with sliced kumquats.  I bought some but they were terribly bitter so I omitted them. 

This was my very first time cooking with turmeric!

1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp garlic, minced
2 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 head of cauliflower, cored and separated into florets
1 shallot thinly sliced and separated into rings
1/4 cup chopped cilantro

>Preheat the oven to 400

>In a small bowl mix the coriander, white pepper, garlic, turmeric, red pepper and olive oil

>Place the cauliflower florets in a large baking dish.
>Drizzle the cauliflower with the spice and oil mixture and toss to coat.
>Season with salt and roast for about 25 minutes or until cauliflower is tender and just starting to brown.

>Scrape cauliflower into a serving bowl, add shallot rings and cilantro and toss together.
