Roasted cauliflower is infinitely better than boiled cauliflower.  It’s the only way my kids will eat it.

I love roasted cauliflower – and I hate boiled cauliflower.  I think most people are with me on this.

A friend recently told me that she has always wanted to try it but wasn’t sure how to make it.  It’s dead easy.

Roasted Cauliflower

Roasting vegetables on the lower rack of the oven keeps the middle free for bulky main dishes.


  • one head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • half a lemon (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  3. Add cauliflower to pan, drizzle with olive oil, add salt and pepper, toss to coat.
  4. Bake on lower rack for 30-45 minutes, tossing every 15 minutes, until golden brown and tender.
  5. Remove from oven and squeeze lemon on top if desired.
