Oven Roasted Cauliflower

Total Time:
40 min
10 min
30 min

6 to 8 servings

  • 1 large cauliflower, about 2 pounds, cut into 1 1/2-inch flowerets
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked white pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the garlic. Toss to mix well and place in a large baking dish or shallow roasting pan. Place the pan in the oven and roast the cauliflower, turning once or twice, until tender and caramelized around the edges, 30 to 35 minutes. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, stir the garlic into the pan.

Remove the pan from the oven and serve immediately.

Pleasantly surprised! You do not need as much oil as the recipe calls for and it's an easy way to eat clean. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful! The whole family loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love roasted cauliflower & frequently make it on a higher heat~425~for about 20 minutes. I decided to try this recipe for a change & was pleasantly surprised. The only change that I made was that I substituted a Mediterranean seasoning blend for the rosemary & it was perfect with the wood smoked salmon & quinoa that I prepared. I did leave it in the oven for 35 minutes. The cauliflower was not carmelized as it usually is at a higher heat but, extremely tasty & tender. Next time I will add brussel sprouts to the roasting pan as suggested by another reviewer. Super easy & tasty side dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been making this recipe since my low carb days...and it's awesome. I cut it differently though--slice the entire head close to 1/4 inch thick. You end up with lots of little bits, as well as tender larger pieces. These bits turn nicely brown and caramelized as the dish cooks. Also, you don't need 1/3 cup of oil. I can't stop eating this when I make it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Emeril, Emeril, Emeril. You are the flavor master. This simple recipe is absolutely fantastic. I added red onion to mine. It is delicious hot or at room temperature. YUMMY. I love your recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe! Upped the quantities of the seasonings just a bit and cooked according to the directions. Immediately after taking it out of the oven, I added green beans that had been boiled for a few minutes (so they were still crispy and mixed them with the cauliflower to coat and season. It was a great addition, adding some texture, color and of course another healthy veggie to the mix! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for the first time, and I did what the other person did, I added Parmesan Cheese at the last moment. I added a little Meyer Lemon Oil i with the regular oil, but I used black pepper instead of the white pepper. I will make this again item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added Parmesan cheese along with the garlic the last 5 minutes. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasted so delicious. A big hit; I wished I had made more. Easy to make. You don't have to use as much oil if you don't want to; adjust the amount to your liking. I used dried Rosemary, and powder white pepper - and it the taste was so awesome. This is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
