Garlic Roasted Cauliflower

Garlic Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

You will need:

  • Large, rimmed baking sheet
  • Small saucepan
  • Large bowl (or gallon size Ziploc bag)
  • Large serving dish


  • 6-7 cups fresh cauliflower florets (1 large head cauliflower)
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice (fresh squeezed)
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper, to taste (I often use sea salt)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Toss cauliflower with oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl or gallon size Ziploc bag. Place cauliflower evenly in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees until softened and lightly browned, about 20 to 25 minutes. Stir or turn occasionally for even roasting. Test with a fork for desired texture. We prefer tender but many folks enjoy crunchy.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat for about 3 minutes (butter should be light brown). Place cauliflower and browned butter in a bowl, and gently toss until coated. Serve warm as a delicious side to any main dish. Enjoy!
