1 medium head cauliflower, cut into 1 1/2-inch florets

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Salt and freshly ground black pepper 

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons diced Calabrian chiles (found in Italian specialty markets)

Fresh flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped, for garnish

Lemon zest, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss the cauliflower florets with the olive oil and some salt and pepper. Place the cauliflower in a large roasting pan (a baking sheet works, too). Place the pan in the oven and roast until the florets are lightly charred and cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Check on the cauliflower occasionally to ensure an even roast. Remove from the oven, place on a serving plate and toss with the lemon juice and chiles. Garnish with lemon zest and parsley. Serve immediately.
