My kids are (thankfully) good eaters and will finish the vegetables served to them without too much grumbling.  But there's one side dish they literally clamor for and it doesn't matter how much I make - there's never enough.  Oven Roasted Cauliflower.  Fortunately, it's one of the easiest veggies to make too.  My eight year old loves to help out with the rinsing and drizzling, and as soon as his knife skills get a little better, I'll let him take over all of the prep on this one!



When you roast cauliflower it softens without getting mushy, and the flavors become rich and robust.  It's currently my favorite vegetable to roast.  I like to get the full heads of cauliflower because I find they keep in the refrigerator for quite a while, and I'm basically terrible at menu planning, but if you're short on time or just not a fan of cutting up veggies then you're welcome to grab the pre-cut kind in a bag.  Just avoid frozen cauliflower because it doesn't roast well.  Great for soups and stir-frys, but not so much for roasting.

Roasted Cauliflower Ingredients:


  • Fresh cauliflower heads (or precut florets)
  • Olive oil
  • Seasoned salt


Roasted Cauliflower Directions:


  1. If you purchased a full head of cauliflower, carefully cut away the leaves and separate the florets into a colander.
  2. Rinse and drain florets, then spread on a large baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and toss them around in the pan a bit so the oil is spread out.
  4. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and roast at 450 degrees for 10 minutes.
  5. Flip cauliflower with a spatula to make sure it's not sticking, and roast 10 more minutes.  Toss once more and go a final ten minutes (for a total of 30 minutes), until cauliflower is tanned nicely overall and a deep brown where it made contact with the pan's surface.
  6. Enjoy!
