Perfect Roasted Cauliflower

Yep, this is another post about cauliflower.  If you are a regular reader, you know that I posted Creamy Mashed Cauliflower just a couple of weeks ago.

Cauliflower is one of those vegetables that a lot of people have an aversion to and as it turns out, roasting it is a great way to introduce it to those pickier eaters and cauliflower newbies.  Roasted cauliflower not only has a wonderful nutty taste but browning of the florets has a great texture.

This is a simple recipe with minimal prep time that you will come back to again and again!


  • For instructions on how to cut a head of Cauliflower into florets, click on my Creamy Mashed Cauliflower recipe.
  • If you really want to save time, pick up a bag of Cauliflower florets.  I know that Trader Joe’s sells them as well as Dole, which is carried in most major supermarkets.
  • I use a glass baking dish (aka Pyrex lasagna dish) instead of a cookie sheet. I find it easier to clean and would rather just do a quick spray of Spectrum High Heat Canola Spray Oil than line a cookie sheet with tin foil (my cookie sheets are non-stick and current recommendations are against spraying non-stick cookware with anything as it adheres to the surface).
