Who likes easy, no-fuss recipes that tastes delicious? *raises hand* Cool, me too. 

So I bring to you a dead-easy roasted cauliflower recipe that can be eaten as a snack, as a side, or for that late-night, before bed, side-eye-from-your-partner meal. 

Live your best life. Eat it whenever. 

Cauliflower has the reputation of being bland, boring, and sometimes soggy… if you boil them to oblivion. But when done right, you can yield perfectly tender cauliflower florets with undertones of sweetness and nutiness when blasted by heat. Hence, we’re throwin’ them into the oven.

Also, when baking these bad boys up, don’t be afraid of the scorched, golden bits on the florets during its cook. That’s what we call “flavor.”

Alright, I don’t feel like writing a story about cauliflower, so let’s get to why you’re even here….

No-Frills Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

Recipe Notes: 

  1. Leave the cauliflower florets frozen. They do not need to be defrosted prior to cooking. 
  2. You may use your favorite seasonings. I kept it simple and added salt and garlic powder. 
  3. Using your typical white cauliflower works too. 



  1. First, preheat oven to 450ºF. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. 
  2. Pour the frozen cauliflower into a large bowl, then drizzle and evenly toss the oil onto the cauliflower, coating each piece. 
  3. Add the salt and your favorite seasonings onto the cauliflower. Toss again. 
  4. Next, place the cauliflower onto the baking sheet, with space in-between each floret. 
  5. Finally, roast for 15-18 minutes.
  6. Optional: for added golden-ness, broil for 1-2 minutes at the end.
