Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Toss the cauliflower florets with ½ a tablespoon of olive oil, the cumin seeds and a generous amount of salt and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes on a baking tray until the florets are just starting to char.
Heat the remaining ½ tablespoon of oil in a large lidded saucepan over a medium heat. Gently fry the onion with a pinch of salt for 8–10 minutes until the onion is soft and slightly golden. Add the garlic to the pan and cook for a further minute until aromatic.
Add the cooked cauliflower florets to the pan, as well as any cumin seeds left on the tray.

Simmer with the lid on for 15–20 minutes until the broccoli and cauliflower are both tender.
