Whole Roasted Cauliflower, Recipe, Meatless Monday, Delaware Beaches

Recipes, Begged, Borrowed & Stolen. That’s taken from my late mother in law, Luise. She was a great cook and I learned so much from her.

The following recipe called Whole Roasted Cauliflower I found on Instagram. Her name is Erin O’Brien. Giving credit where credit is due.


1 whole cauliflower

1/2 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons melted butter

3 garlic cloves smashed

zest of 1 lemon

salt and pepper to taste

1 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

juice of 1 lemon

crushed red pepper

Fresh parsley

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees

Look how pretty this cauliflower is. Let’s get it ready.

Remove root, wash and dry.

Combine oil, melted butter, garlic, and lemon zest. Add desired salt and pepper. Whisk.

In a deep pan or Dutch oven place the cauliflower upside down. Pour half of mixture, getting it all over. I used a brush.

Then turn it over and pour the rest of the mixture on top and spread with brush or hands.

Place in oven for 40 minutes. Test with a knife for doneness. Make sure the knife goes in easily.

Remove from the oven but leave oven on. With a spoon or brush baste the top of the cauliflower with the liquid in the pan.

Then broil on low for 15 minutes to get it crispy. If using high then you need to watch closely.

Put Parmesan cheese, coating it evenly. Put back in the oven for 5 minutes.

Pour the lemon juice over the cauliflower. Sprinkle with red crushed pepper and parsley.

Make sure you add those juices. They add so much to this dish.

It turned out so good. Will make it again and again.
