Making cauliflower is the perfect vegetable if you are looking to go low carb. I love using it as a substitute in certain recipes like swapping with potatoes in my Loaded Cauliflower Mash, or for rice for Cauliflower Fried Rice, and even as a pasta substitute in my Cauliflower Mac and Cheese.

Roasting cauliflower really brings out its’ nutty flavor and I love how it caramelizes the edges. This recipe is so easy to prepare. I just toss it with garlic, lemon juice and olive oil and top it with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and some lemon zest when it comes out of the oven.

I can eat a whole bowl of this for lunch, but I usually make this as a side. You can serve it with steaks, pork chops or chicken. An irresistible side dish, even for people who don’t like cauliflower.

Hope you enjoy!

  1. Best roasted Cauliflower I have ever tried! It’s delicious. I didn’t flip the cauliflower and it caramelized beautifully. So good, it tasted like a protein. I could see putting this on top of a salad instead of chicken or salmon for a change.

  2. Just delicious…..highly recommend

  3. This is one of our all time favorite side dish recipes of yours. Do you think it would be good in the air fryer?

  4. Easy and so delicious! Cant wait to make this again!! Everyone loved it.

  5. How many servings does this make? Thanks!

  6. Way exceeded my expectations! Simple ingredients and easy preparation result in something truly delicious and healthy. This would also be great as an appetizer with an aioli dipping sauce.

  7. I also add some siraracha sauce!

  8. I made it it’s cooking right now as a matter of fact. I broke it up into Flourz. And I also added some fresh brussels sprouts Habs to it little bit of olive oil pepper flakes and garlic salt. I’m cooking it at 400 until it’s golden brown

  9. My family turned their noses up at the sound of this…but one taste quickly changed their minds. Another delicious recipe. I LOVE finding fun recipes that encourage my kids to eat their veggies! Thanks!

  17. I sprinkle cayenne pepper, harissa or garam masala on  the cauliflower. 

  18. Absolutely delicious – Add some sliced onion rings (separated) when cooking is near complete,  sprinkle cashew or walnut pieces over al and warm — This is absolutely THE best — I love to sprinkle with a bit of tabasco too or feta cheese — OhMyGosh it’s delicious whatever you do!!
