Anwesha Recipes: Roasted Cauliflower

Cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower are the ultimate cool-weather crop here in Colorado. They contain a substantial amount of fiber and b vitamins plus phytonutrients and antioxidants galore. If you visit your local farmers market this weekend be sure to pick some up and try this simple but delicious recipe: 


1 Whole Cauliflower

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

4-6 Cloves Garlic

1/2 Teaspoon Cumin

1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika

1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

A pinch of Sea Salt

1 sprig of flat leaf Parsley, finely chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. Cut the Cauliflower head in length wise portions (about 1/2inch thick) and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the garlic cloves alongside.
  3. Drizzle the top of the Cauliflower and Garlic with olive oil, smoked paprika, cayenne and cumin. 
  4. Place in a preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until browned around the edges and soft at the center. 
  5. Remove from the oven. Place the garlic cloves in a separate bowl on the side to cool.
  6. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil onto the cauliflower. Add a pinch of Sea Salt and the chopped Parsley.
  7. When the Garlic has cooled enough to handle safely, remove the skin and mash the soft flesh with a fork. Spread this goodness on top of the Cauliflower as well. 
  8. Enjoy!!
