Roasted Cauliflower recipe your whole family will love! How to roast cauliflower and season it so that it’s full of flavor and delicious as a side dish or even as your main meal.
We’ve been really trying to focus on clean eating lately, even though it’s really hard when you’re traveling and the quickest, easiest thing to do is grab something from the fast food drive-thru. Clean eating isn’t hard it just takes a little more time. Planning ahead and prepping are key to keeping yourself on track so I try to create a solid meal plan each week and aim to stick to atleast 80 percent of it.
I made this Roasted Cauliflower dish recently and it was so tasty! I really like cauliflower but trying to get my husband and the kids to go for it is a whole different story. It’s really got to have a lot of flavor for them to make it past the first forced bite.
This recipe has a little spicy kick to it from the chile powder. If you want something a little more tame you could skip the chile powder and add sprinkle fresh parmesan over the cauliflower after it’s roasted. Just wait till the last five or ten minutes to add cheese if you do so it doesn’t burn.

Oh this looks so nice! I would never think to roast cauliflower I only ever have it in cheese!
I’ve never been a fan of cauliflower, but I think it’s because I’ve had way too many failed recipes. This one looks super easy and really yummy!
That looks so good! I need to start eating better, so I bet this would be a great thing to try!
This Roasted Cauliflower recipe looks so delicious and easy to make. I am sure it will be a big hit with my family. I will have to give it a try this weekend.
Cauliflower is really hit or miss for me. It has to be done a certain way or I just don’t like the flavor. This recipe does look good, so it’s worth trying but I would be sad to throw it out, if it didn’t turn out alright given how picky I am about it.
That sounds like something I would really, really enjoy, but there’s no way my family would eat it, lol! More for me! 😀
Mashed cauliflower is on my list of recipes to try! I’m sure it’s delicious too

YUM! I love cauliflower and I finally got my husband to admit to its tastiness as well…I’m going to give this a try asap. Pinning it!
Lol! Why are men so adverse to veggies? I had to convince mine too but after he tried it he really liked it
I am discovering all these amazing cauliflower recipes lately, from cauliflower rice, to amazing ways to roast them as a snack, so delicious and healthy too.
That looks so delicious and easy to make. I can definitely try this next weekend and share it with my boyfriends. He needs to eat some cauliflower sometimes.
Awesome, so glad you like it and I’m sure your boyfriend will like it too! My husband wasn’t into the idea but really enjoyed it after he tried it made this way. Roasted cauliflower has a ton of flavor and a hearty texture so it’s filling too
I love cauliflower because it’s so versatile. I like that this recipe is not so difficult to make! I would love to make it one of these days!
Me too, there are so many delicious ways you can prepare cauliflower. We recently “riced” some up too and it was super tasty. Glad you liked this recipe
