oven roasted cauliflower

YOU’VE HEARD ME SAY IT OVER AND OVER. And it’s not just to be annoying (I gave that up in high school. Mostly.) If I want my kids to eat more vegetables, I always roast them. Cauliflower is actually the most delicious. It’s our kids’ favorite. Really. And here’s another bonus. It’s easy.

Turn on the oven. You need it hot: 425 degrees F.

  1. Start with a big head of cauliflower and cut it into four pieces. Slice the core out.
  2. Cut it one way.
  3. Dice up the rest. Don’t worry about making florets–everything is delicious no matter what shape it’s in and everything shrinks when you roast it anyway.
  4. Pile the cauliflower on a baking sheet and slather with extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with salt. Mix with your hands, then spread all the cauliflower evenly.
  5. Into the oven for 25 minutes, flipping once halfway through. If you get the edges crispy and the insides still soft, you won’t have even one bite left.

Ingredients
  • 1 cauliflower
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Start with a big head of cauliflower and cut it into four pieces. Slice the core out, on a diagonal. Make slices, then dices. You don't have to make perfect florets and don't throw away any pieces that seem like mostly stem. That's just as delicious when you roast it.
  3. Pile cauliflower on a baking sheet and slather with extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and mix it with your hands. Spread out evenly on the pan.
  4. Into the oven for 25 minutes, flipping once halfway through. If you get the edges crispy and the insides still soft, you won't have even one bite left.

    I found your website while looking for a kid-friendly turkey chili recipe. We tried the recipe you posted and with the addition of some red pepper and a little Italian seasoning, the turkey chili was absolutely amazing. Although our little lady was not to thrilled….we LOVED it. We can’t wait to try some of the other recipes on your site and I just wanted to say thank you for sharing some great recipes and snack ideas.
