I’ve not been shy about how important I feel vegetarian cooking and spice go together. While I love a simple roasted vegetable tossed with olive oil and salt, there’s also something to be said for a vegetable that is heavily spiced. This tandoori cauliflower is a good example. The tandoori spice mix relies on an equal mix of cumin, coriander, and paprika- all of which make a lovely companion for the cauliflower. Paired with the feta-yogurt and this could easily eat the cauliflower just dipped in the yogurt spread! Make a batch of the cauliflower on the weekend to use with eggs in the morning or this wrap for lunch.
A flavorful and beautiful lunch featuring tandoori roasted cauliflower, spicy arugula, and a fresh feta-yogurt spread.
- 2 cups cauliflower florets (cut into small pieces)
- 1/4 medium red onion (sliced)
- 1/3 cup whole milk yogurt
- 1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- 1/2 recipe tandoori seasoning
- Salt (as needed)
- 1/4 cup whole milk yogurt
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta
- 3 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 4 Whole Wheat Flatout Wraps
- 2 to 3 cups lightly packed baby arugula
- Heat oven to 400˚F.
- In a roasting pan, combine the cauliflower florets with the onion, yogurt, ginger, garlic, seasoning, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt (if needed). Toss until everything is well combined and the cauliflower is evenly coated. Bake until cauliflower is tender and lightly browning, 25 to 30 minutes.
- While the cauliflower is roasting, combine the yogurt, feta, parsley, and lemon juice together. Set aside.
- Assemble the wraps with a smear of the feta-yogurt, roughly ½ cup arugula, and ¼ of the cauliflower. Serve with a sprinkle of parsley.
Tips & Tricks: Roast the cauliflower ahead of time to make quick work of the wrap.
If using premixed tandoori seasoning, using about 1 tablespoon of seasoning.

Step by Step
I like to collect pieces of meals and the tandoori cauliflower fits that bill. Roast up an entire head of cauliflower with the seasonings above and beyond this wrap, you could easily use the cauliflower on salad, pizza, pastas, or grain bowls. The spices pair nicely with the cauliflower and can easily be the star of any meal.
Vegan Use olive oil to roast the cauliflower and replace the yogurt-feta spread with a garlicky hummus or other vegan spread you might enjoy.
Salad: Ditch the wraps and toss the arugula and cauliflower with just feta and drizzle with a lemon vinaigrette before serving.
Greens: Swap out the arugula for baby spinach or lettuce- both these greens are a bit more mild in flavor compared to the arugula.
I am always thinking about more healthy lunches that I can send with M. Lunch has always been a bit tricky but I’ve found the more hand-held items I send him with, the more likely he is to eat. These wraps are easy to find and are the perfect start to a solid, filling lunch (like this tandoori cauliflower wrap!) A few of my other favorite wrap ideas include:
