Roasted Cauliflower


Roasted Cauliflower

This is a quick cauliflower dish that the whole family can enjoy.  You can simply roast the cauliflower and keep this a vegan dish, or add cheese at the end.  You can also be creative with the spices and cheeses you use, and try a different combination each time!


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, or other spices
  • Cheese

Roasted Cauliflower


Pre-heat the oven to 425°F.

Cut the cauliflower into bite-size florets.  In a bowl, drizzle the cauliflower with olive oil, add your spices, and toss.  You can use salt and pepper, Italian spices, or any other combinations that you wish.

Arrange on a cookie sheet or pan in a single layer.

Roast approximately 20-25 minutes or more, until browned.  I usually turn the cauliflower about halfway through to make sure the pieces cook evenly.

I like my cauliflower roasted, but firm.

If desired, you can add cheese.  I like smoked aged cheddar, extra sharp cheddar, or smoked gouda, but you can use any kind.  For this head of cauliflower, I used about 4oz (half a block) of cheese).

Return the pan to the oven, set to broil, and melt the cheese until bubbly and browned (which should only take a few minutes).
