Oven Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

Tonight was a rare occasion…we actually sat down and had a family dinner…together! Thanks to Mother Nature, lacrosse practice was canceled. Only problem, I forgot to take something out to make tonight. It was 4:30 pm and I was scrambling to figure out what to make. I found a Stouffer’s Meat Loaf in the freezer so I made that, noodles for the kids, heated up some leftover mashed sweet potatoes and I made THE BEST oven roasted cauliflower. It got an “eh” from Zack. That’s pretty huge considering he will only eat salad and green beans!

Oven Roasted Cauliflower



  • One Head of Cauliflower
  • 2 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 Onion, sliced
  • 2 TBS Olive Oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Cayenne Pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with tin foil (makes clean up easier).
  2. Put all of the ingredients, except for the Parmesan Cheese, into a gallon size Ziplock bag. Shake the bag to toss the ingredients evenly.
  3. Pour everything in the bag onto the baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle the Parmesan Cheese over top of the cauliflower and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes.

Look at all that deliciousness!


I am a huge cauliflower fanatic. I thought my favorite was the Cauliflower Rice was my favorite recipe, but now I don’t know! If cayenne pepper is not your thing, experiment with different spices!


  1. I have always wanted to make roast cauliflower, but never had the nerve to actually try it. A friend of mine made some a few weeks ago and LOVED it. So I put it on my grocery list that i will be buying today! Thanks for the recipe I will be using it soon!

  2. We love roasted cauliflower! I use italian spices or I add some smoked gouda or cheddar cheese at the end. Such an easy recipe and family-approved too!

  3. I am not the biggest fan of cauliflower because I don’t really know what to do with it. I will have to try this out, it looks yummy.

  4. What a great idea. We eat cauliflower every now and then and this would be something different for us to try. Thanks!!
