  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil, and stir in the salt, black pepper, cumin, oregano, curry powder, and turmeric.

  • 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.

  • To serve, place a large serving platter on top of the uncovered pot, and flip to turn out the contents onto the platter.
