Garlic Roasted Cauliflower

cauliflowerI had every intention of making this recipe Tuesday evening, but a late night in lab forced me to cut a few a LOT of corners to prevent us from eating dinner way past midnight …

Here is my amended, yummy and super-quick recipe for roasted cauliflower (sorry, no photos for this one guys):

Ingredients: makes 2-4 side servings

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • about 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • salt and pepper
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 425*F.
  2. Spread out cauliflower in a roasting pan or on a cookie sheet and toss with 3 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper until evenly coated.
  3. Pop cauliflower in the oven and roast for 15-20 minutes, or until cauliflower becomes tender and slightly golden.
  4. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add garlic.
  5. Cook garlic for 1-2 minutes then add breadcrumbs and stir until combined.
  6. Remove cauliflower from oven and toss with breadcrumb mixture.

Ta-da!!  A ridiculously easy side dish that is sure to please!

I think next time I will try using less oil and add some fresh herbs right at the end … enjoy!
