Oven-Roasted Cauliflower with Garlic, Olive Oil and Lemon Juice

Thanks Emeril Lagasse from the Food Network for “kicking it up a notch”. Turn cauliflower into a special side dish for dinner.  Roasting the garlic really kicks up the flavor. The cauliflower and garlic are in abundance at the Market.  Shop The Cheese People for your parmesan and Marvelhas, Tastefully Simple and Wildtree for a fine selection of flavored oils

  • 5 to 6 cups cauliflower florets, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter (from 1 medium cauliflower)

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon sliced garlic

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan

  • Chopped chives, for garnish 


  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.

  2. Place the cauliflower florets in a large saute pan or a roasting pan. Drizzle the olive oil over the cauliflower, and season with the garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Place the saute/roasting pan in the oven and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure even roasting.

  3. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the Parmesan. Garnish with chopped chives and serve immediately while still warm.
