Whole roasted cauliflower with 5 spices makes for the perfect star of the show on your dinner table!
My husband and I have been veggie-forward for a while now and recently have decided to go more plant-based. He is 100% vegan and I am what I like to call flexitarian.
Making vegetables the star of the show is actually pretty easy, cheap and delicious! Not to mention healthier as well!
Roasting the whole cauliflower is the easiest and most visually impressive, in my opinion!
You can season with any spices you like. The trio that works with any other sides are onion powder, garlic powder and paprika powder.
I’ve also made it with dried basil, dried oregano, miso, tahini or just salt and pepper.
Give it a try and serve it alongside a yummy sauce, rice, potatoes, or a salad.
For this recipe, I’ve cooked up basmati rice and made yogurt tzatziki sauce.
Make the Oil & Seasoning Mix
Season The Cauliflower
Wash and dry the head of cauliflower and rip off the majority of the green leaves. If the cauliflower head can not stand on it's on, cut off a bit of the stem so it can stand up straight.
Place the head of cauliflower on a baking sheet or baking dish.
Drizzle about half of the oil and seasoning mix over the cauliflower.
Using a basting brush or you hands, rub in the seasoning well so that every part of the cauliflower is covered well.
Roast The Cauliflower
Roast the cauliflower in your preheated oven for 60-90 minutes on the middle rack, basting it with the remaining oil and seasoning mix every 20-30 minutes.
If you are roasting the cauliflower in a baking dish, add 1 cup of water to the dish. This will help steam the cauliflower from the bottom and speed up the process.
Dress The Cauliflower

It's a simple and filling meal!
