Quick Roasted Cauliflower w/ Lemon & GarlicI just about died and went to heaven.  For a vegetable. Me?!

This was a spontaneous throw together last minute side dish.  I had two heads of cauliflower to use, so it was a logical choice.

Problem was, cauliflower preparations I have enjoyed took a bit longer to prepare and bake, and I needed something in the next 15 minutes.

Toss a vegetable with a few basic ingredients, roast it to bring out that luscious sweetness, and voila…a mouthwatering, easy side dish!  The lemon really set this off for me…and if I could have Parmesan, I can bet a couple of tablespoons sprinkled on top would be out of this world.

Quick Oven Roasted Cauliflower w/ Lemon & Garlic
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into bite size florets
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (I bet the addition of lemon zest would be great to
  • 4-8 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced (depending on how garlicky you like it, the garlic will be roasted too, so not too pungent)
  • Salt to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Toss the cauliflower florets with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Place on a cookie sheet or roasting pan and place in the oven. Roast for about 10-15 minutes until the florets are fork tender and beginning to brown! This is good hot or cold!

    Wow-I love recipes that I have all of the ingredients on hand for and the ingredients sound so perfect together. I am looking forward to trying this. I think I am going to try this with broccoli too!

  2. Yum. Sounds so good. I have a hard time getting cauliflower into my son, but anything with 8 cloves of garlic in it has to be good! I think he might like this.

    • It was funny, my eldest, who is usually more willing to eat her veg wouldn’t touch it. After the whole “you need to take one bite, and if you don;t like it, you don;t have to eat anymore” spiel, you took one tentative bite, then her whole face lit up and she gobbled the rest down quickly!! Hopefully you have the same results! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This is my favorite way to have cauliflower! My mother in law always fries it, and while it is good, I discovered roasting it has all the good things about fried, but it tastes even better!
