What to do With the Leftovers

  • Refrigerate – Store the leftover cauliflower in an airtight container in the refrigerator for four days.

  • Reheat – You can reheat turmeric cauliflower in the microwave, but if you want them crispy, warm them in the oven at 350°F (176°C) for 5-10 minutes.
  • Repurpose  Break it up and use it as a base for vegetable or meat bowls. Add it to scrambled eggs for a breakfast hash.
