Whatever the season, roasted vegetables are delicious and so easy to make. They work well with everyday meals, an elegant dinner, a barbeque or just a one person meal. The roasting brings out the flavors and sweetens the vegetables. We never have leftovers when I make this cauliflower for my family!

How to Make Roasted Cauliflower with spices and cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper
  2. Wash and core the Cauliflower. Cut florets into bite sized pieces. A small cauliflower will serve about 4 people. A very large cauliflower will need to be separated onto 2 pans otherwise it will not roast but bake. You will also need to double your added ingredients.
  3. Put the cauliflower into a bowel and add olive oil. stir until all pieces are covered.
  4. Add spices gradually. Stirring until the spices are spread to all the cauliflower. You can experiment with spice combinations but my family likes a citrus base. You could also use a flavored olive oil.
  5. Transfer to pan. Keep the pieces florets up and keep them from touching one another. Dribble whatever olive oil and spices are left over the cauliflower.
  6. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until the florets turn a light golden brown around the edges. It may take a little longer, check them in 5 minute increments after the 20 minutes are up.
  7. When browned, remove from oven and sprinkle the cup of cheese over the florets. Return to oven and continue baking until the cheese has melted and is beginning to brown.
  8. to transfer to serving dish use a spatula. A squeeze of lemon juice is great at this point if you like the tanginess, but not necessary.
  9. This is especially good with grilled fish! Enjoy
