This simple roasted Cauliflower recipe makes for a nice and light low carb side dish. It’s simple, and fairly quick to prepare and you can throw it in the oven while you’re cooking the rest of your meal. Additional seasoning of your choice can be added to the dressing based on your taste. Curry powder can work nicely with this dish as well if you want to add a little spice. The acidity of the lemon juice helps preserve the white color in the cauliflower and adds a nice fresh tartness to it. I am totally addicted to this now and make it all the time when I’m short on ingredients for more complex recipes.

Serving suggestion:

I also like to drizzle some Tahini dressing over the roasted cauliflower for extra flavor and health benefits.

There is a middle eastern dish of friend cauliflower with Tahini that I love but this is a far less fatty version since the cauliflower is roasted and not deep fried.

  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F. Remove the large florets from the cauliflower and cut them into even-sized pieces. The larger florets can be sliced in half. Place the cauliflower pieces into the bowl with the dressing and toss to coat well. Cooking time may vary based on the size of the pieces and how done you like your cauliflower to be.
  2. To roast the cauliflower, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lay any flat pieces of cauliflower cut-side down, so they caramelize nicely. Roast for about 10 minutes before tossing. Check the oven again after about 10 minutes or until it is almost cooked through and slightly darker.
