1 head of cauliflower 2-3 tablespoons olive oil Salt and pepper to taste Optional seasonings (choose one or more):

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Fresh herbs like rosemary or thyme (for extra flavor)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (for a cheesy version)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with cooking spray.
  2. Rinse the cauliflower head and remove any green leaves. Cut the cauliflower into bite-sized florets. Make sure they are similar in size to ensure even cooking.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cauliflower florets with the olive oil. Toss them well to coat evenly. The oil will help the cauliflower become crispy during roasting.
  4. Season the cauliflower with salt and pepper. Add any optional seasonings of your choice. You can get creative with the seasonings to suit your taste.
  5. Spread the seasoned cauliflower florets in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Make sure they are not too crowded to allow proper roasting. If needed, use two baking sheets.
  6. Roast the cauliflower in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until it becomes tender and develops a golden-brown color. Be sure to toss or shake the pan once or twice during the roasting process to ensure even cooking.
  7. If you’re making a cheesy version, you can sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the cauliflower during the last 5-10 minutes of roasting. This will give it a nice, crispy, cheesy crust.
  8. Once the cauliflower is done, remove it from the oven and serve hot as a side dish. You can garnish it with fresh herbs if desired.

Roasted cauliflower is versatile and pairs well with various main dishes. Enjoy!
