Easy roasted cauliflower is a side dish that needs to be on your dinner table all season long. It's super easy to throw together into a sheet pan and pop into the oven. Roasting cauliflower in the oven adds such an incredible depth of flavour with a little caramelization on the top. So so delicious. Plus, this dish is vegan and gluten-free, so whatcha waiting for?
What is in Roasted Cauliflower?
All you need to make this delicious side dish is cauliflower and a few basic pantry staples:
- cauliflower - one medium head of cauliflower broken into florets (about 5-6 cups)
- olive oil
- garlic powder
- Italian seasoning
- salt and pepper
How to Make the Best Easy Roasted Cauliflower in 2 Steps
Roasted cauliflower is ridiculously easy to make and so delicious. All you do is throw all your ingredients into a large mixing bowl or directly into a sheet pan, and toss to combine. Pop the pan into the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes.
How to Serve
- Serve roasted cauliflower as a side dish with your favourite fall meals. I like to pair it with easy juicy roasted turkey breast, some easy roasted brussels sprouts and an apple walnut salad.
- Add it to your easy Thanksgiving menu. A side dish this easy will be a life-saver on the big day when you have a million other things to stress over.
- Use it to make soup. Some of my favourites are roasted butternut squash and cauliflower soup and creamy cauliflower and garlic soup. The cauliflower in this recipe is caramelized in a pot, but you can easily adapt it and use roasted cauliflower instead.
- Try it in garlic mashed cauliflower. The cauliflower in that recipe is boiled, but again you can adapt the recipe and use roasted cauliflower instead. It will add an amazing layer of flavour.
