Roasted Cauliflower with Aromatic Roasting Rub

This recipe is just an example of how to use Pastiche blends to roast vegetables. You can substitute the Aromatic Roasting Rub for any other Pastiche blends, as well as use a different vegetable. Here are some ideas for delicious combinations, but feel free to experiment: Carrots with Harissa Spice Blend; Onions with Baharat Spice Blend; Sweet Potatoes with Tan-Tan Morrocan Spice Blend; Carrot, pumpkin, or squash with Ras El Hanout; Broccoli with Aromatic Roasting Rub or with Harissa Spice Blend; Baby Potatoes and Harissa Spice Blend. And the list goes on…


  • 2 garlic cloves, finely grated
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Aromatic Roasting Rub
  • 1 whole cauliflower, flowers separated
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Whisk garlic, oil, and aromatic roasting rub in a small bowl
  2. Toss cauliflower and lemon with spice mixture in a large roasting pan to coat; season with salt and pepper if you want an additional kick
  3. Roast, tossing occasionally, until cauliflower is tender and lemons are caramelized, about 35–40 minutes
