Toasty Cauliflower Goodness

I love to watch Anne Burrell cook--she's on the Food Network. She's a great teacher and makes things look easy. One of my new favorite things is roasted cauliflower, which Ms. Burrell shared on her show. Not only is it delicious, but a cup of raw cauliflower has only 25 calories. So...adding a little bit of olive oil doesn't sabotage your healthy eating plan.

One had roasted cauliflower
Olive oil to coat
Salt and pepper

1. Cut cauliflower into florets so they cover a foil lined baking sheet in one layer.
2. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.
3. Roast at 375 degrees F for about 45 minutes (stirring periodically), or until tender, brown and delicious.
4. Add a bit more salt to taste if necessary. I add a little bit of crushed red pepper flakes before I roast to give them a little kick.


  1. I'm so glad you are doing this!! I have a good friend Becca who also has to be gluten free so I'm sharing this with her. I'll try to figure out how to share her recipes with you some are amazing!! We are kindred spirits when it comes to food - I am finding roased veggies of any kind are really good. Can you shave parmesan on top (the real stuff not the green jar) - makes it taste nutty!

    Thanks! Karen R.

    You are my first, non-familial commenter! Thank you! I started to think I was writing to myself. I am going to try the Parmesan idea next time...trying to cut my calories so that will be a treat. : ) Also, Anne Burrell did hers with brussel sprouts, which might be tasty as well.
    Again, thanks for reading!

  3. I'm here too! Am I your second, non-family commenter? ;) Great job with the new blog, Rach!!

  4. Hi Amy! Yes, you are my second. : )
