This easy roasted cauliflower recipe is an essential veggie side dish! It's simple and delicious - the florets come out of the oven with crisp, golden brown edges and a rich, nutty flavor.


  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for roasting
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, for sprinkling

Additional Seasoning Options

  • Zest of 1 lemon, optional
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley, optional
  • grated parmesan, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Break the cauliflower into bite-sized florets. Toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper and spread evenly onto the baking sheet. Roast for 25 to 35 minutes, or until browned around the edges.
  • Season to taste. If desired, toss with the lemon zest, parsley, and/or grated parmesan, and serve.
