Roasted Cauliflower with Lemon and Garlic

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Roasted Cauliflower with Lemon and Garlic, easy and delicious!

In the quest to eat more vegetables, I have turned to oven roasting them. And for a couple of really good reasons. First just like with a casserole or large piece of meat, once you begin the roasting process, you are free to turn your attention to other dishes. Which for us, can often mean another vegetable. Second, roasted anything is better than steamed, boiled or baked anything. So you see, it is a win-win situation.

Roasted Cauliflower with Lemon and Garlic, eat more vegetables!

The ingredient list is simple, the technique is simple, the taste, however, is wonderful. This is not earth-shattering, and while there are dozens of different recipes for cauliflower with lemon out there, this is just the way we enjoy it. Oh and one more thing, the fruit of the lemon cooks into a delicious pan glaze and all that is left is the rind, seared, softened and so good with the cauliflower....

Roasted Cauliflower with Lemon and Garlic
serves 4-6
450-degree oven

1 medium-size cauliflower
1 lemon
2-3 cloves garlic minced or my new favorite ready to use garlic
olive oil

Cut cauliflower into florets. If very large, cut into halves or thirds.

Slice lemon, remove all seeds, cut each slice into quarters or smaller if desired

Roasted Cauliflower with Lemon and Garlic

In a large bowl toss the florets, lemon pieces, and the minced garlic with enough olive oil to moisten. Turn into a cast iron skillet, sprinkle with salt.

Roast 15 minutes, stir to turn over to coat with the oil and seasonings.

Roast 10 minutes more, carefully bring glaze sitting on the bottom of the pan to the top, while gently tossing cauliflower.

  6. It's been a long time since I roasted cauliflower, this looks like a good recipe to jump back into it with.

  7. I've recently turned to roasting veggies too - my mother never prepped vegetables this way when I was a kid, but I love the taste. I have yet to try cauliflower, though!

  8. Mmmm...I LOVE roasted cauliflower! I just discovered roasting it and other veggies a couple of years ago and just love it - like you said, quick and easy and sooo tasty!

    I usually use a roasting pan, but I like the idea of using a cast iron skillet and adding whole pieces of lemon to the mix. Yum.
