Ingredients

1 head cauliflower (medium)
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
¼ cup grated cheese 

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.

  3. Cut cauliflower into florets about equal in size and put in a large bowl. Add the oil, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper and stir to coat the pieces.
  4. Spread the florets on a large baking sheet with space between the pieces.
  5. Roast for 30 minutes or until cauliflower is tender when pierced with a fork. Sprinkle with cheese before serving.

Notes

  • Try adding other seasonings such as chili powder, paprika, curry powder or red pepper flakes.
  • Try slicing the cauliflower into 'steaks' with flat edges.

Comments

I make this all the time.  My family loves it!

We love roasted cauliflower! I made this on a gas grill recently and it worked well to settle the temperature at about 400 degrees F as suggested here for the oven. I traded the onion powder for chili powder.
