Roasted Cauliflower

Cauliflower…who knew it could be so tasty and essential in a low carb lifestyle?  We were brought up on the boiled to death version so it was a complete surprise to taste it roasted.  Oh my, the mighty roasted cauliflower roars with flavour and  is very addictive.  I could eat a whole plate (and have).  This dish is a great snack, but it also makes a great salad dish when cold, and can be a side vegetable dish too.   The versatility of the cauliflower…who knew!?!

You can flavour this with other ingredients such as chilli, paprika, grated parmesan cheese, dried herbs, garlic butter (that was when I ate the whole pan…got to redo that one again.  When the husband is out so I have it to myself..)

INGREDIENTS

1 cauliflower cut into florets

1 garlic clove, chopped,

1 lemon

2 tblspns olive oil

salt and pepper to taste.

METHOD

  1. Heat the oven to 200C/400 F
  2. Put the cauliflower in a bowl and add the remaining ingredients.  Mix well.
  3. Place the cauliflower in a roasting tin/on a baking tray.
  4. Bake for about 25-30 minutes until golden brown.  You should turn the florets half way through cooking too.
  5. Enjoy!

    […] that substitute deserve a reward! However, if you search for Cauliflower Fries you will find roasted cauliflower florets being passed off as a substitute for French Fries. Now, I have a creative imagination but […]

    I can see you have put the lemon rind in but did you also squeeze the juice on the cauliflower?

      Only a very small amount – just a dash, otherwise the cauliflower would get soggy. Enjoy!
