  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the cauliflower florets onto a baking sheet, and brush with olive oil. Bake in the preheated oven until beginning to brown, about 30 minutes. Set aside.
  3. While cauliflower is baking, place ground beef and onion into a large pot over medium heat, and cook and stir until the meat is browned, about 10 minutes. Break the meat apart into crumbles as it cooks. Remove from heat.
  4. In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil, and stir in the salt, black pepper, cumin, oregano, curry powder, and turmeric.
  5. Mix the cooked cauliflower and garlic into the ground beef and onion in the large pot, and stir in the white rice. Pour the spiced water into the pot over the rice, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cover the pot; cook until the rice is tender and the water has absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat, and allow to stand covered for 5 to 10 minutes to help dry out the rice.
  6. To serve, place a large serving platter on top of the uncovered pot, and flip to turn out the contents onto the platter.

I did this with brown rice and frozen cauliflower and it came out really nice. With the brown rice you need a bit more water and the cook time is longer.

I used broccoli instead of the cauliflower, and no meat. The flavors go well together. To save time, I roasted the broccoli while the rice, onions, and spices were cooking, so I served the bro...

Just made this according to the recipe and everyone in the family liked it. I was worried when I did a "taste test" of the water with spices added, thinking it would be too spicy, but when added...

I thought this was just ok. I doubled the spices and it was still a big bland for us.

Overall this recipe was pretty good, I loved being able to combine the cauliflower, beef and rice with a curried flavor. I halved the recipe and I don't know if that made the difference or not ...

This was edible, but anything I'd make again. Too bland.

I agree with the other reviews...Cook time is not long enough. Good flavor though.
