This Garlic Lover’s Roasted Cauliflower is one of my family’s favorite recipes. We fight over the crunchy bits of garlic!
This Garlic Lover’s Roasted Cauliflower is seriously my favorite way to eat and prepare cauliflower. When cauliflower is roasted in the oven, it gets nice and golden, and a little crispy! It’s almost like a caramelization of sorts.
And then there’s ALL THE GARLIC!
You might find your table mates trying to steal your pieces of garlic when you’re not looking. The positive side of this? There will be NO vampires coming around your house. Like, at all. 😉
I’ve been known to eat this alone for a meal, but you can always serve it as a side dish.
Pair it with chicken, fish, steak, etc. You really can’t go wrong.

Whether you eat this as a side dish or a main meal is up to you, but just be warned, you may find yourself fighting for those roasted garlic cloves!
Yum, I totally hear you, I discovered roasted cauliflower for the first time this winter,and oh my, addicting!! It’s nice when a new obsession comes with so little guilt! (;
Thanks for the link love Megan!
Megan, my son just told me that he loves cauliflower so I’ll be making this recipe soon! Thanks, dear!
Hi Meg…um, yes please. I adore roasted cauliflower and I’m crazy for garlic. I would gobble this up in a second. My kids happen to love cauliflower too, so this is a must try! Thanks for a great recipe friend.
Have a great weekend,
P.S. I received an email update about a Whole Food Friday link party (I think that’s what it was) but the link wasn’t working. Just a heads up. 🙂
After 15 minutes the cauliflower was already dark brown on the edges and overdone because I didn’t stir them. I don’t know how you were able to roast for an hour?
Did you set your oven on “bake” or “roast”?
I love roasted cauliflower! I found that it tastes great when roasted with turmeric!
please i have bake it or roast?its a different?bake is with hot air and roast is grill or how i have set my oven?thank you
You want to set your oven to bake. I have a very simple oven, so I forget there are other ovens out there with other settings. 🙂
Wow! You got my entire family to eat cauliflower – that has never once happened in our entire 16 years as a family. All of the kids kept asking for more and the dish was emptied in minutes. Amazing!
Ha ha!! That’s awesome. 🙂 Thanks for telling me that. Happy you all enjoyed it!
This is my go-to recipe for roasted cauliflower. The first time I made it, ALL 4 of the kids fought over who got to finish the pan – four kids, who up until that point, couldn’t stand cauliflower. haha Thanks so much for a truly good and simple recipe!
Oh my goodness – I just realized I already commented on this post! It’s THAT good, that I must have wanted to compliment you more than once! 🙂 I feel dumb now. But the recipe is really great. Thanks again!
Ha ha ha!!! Rae, you totally made my day yesterday! Thank you so much for commenting… multiple times. 😉 I’m so happy your family enjoys this recipe! 🙂
This is absolutely delish!! I’m hooked and shared the recipe in my meal group for everyone to try! Thank you!!!
Thanks for sharing, Lena! I’m happy you enjoyed it! 🙂
Thank you so much for this amazing recipe! I ate half of it before it ever got to the dinner table. 🙂
I was laughing a bit because my family also goes for the crunchy bits. This is a wonderful recipe 🙂
Hahahaha!! Great minds! 😉 Thanks Sandi.
