Comfort is often found in the kitchen. With the turn of a dial, warmth and comfort can permeate our homes and hearts. I’m often surprised how dark and dreary days can be made a little brighter by simply turning the oven on and roasting something.

During the busy workweek we don’t always have the luxury or time to put a  roast in the oven and let it cook for hours on end. But there are other things we can roast that can be made in a fraction of the time, at a fraction of the cost, which have the same healing, comforting effect.

Like this delicious, simple  roasted cauliflower!

  1. I love your recipes, and this is another good one. Your seasoning combinations are so good. I’ve been following Feasting at Home about a year and truly enjoy the experience. Thank you!

  2. Another excellent recipe Sylvia! I followed the recipe exactly.. I’m eating it over a bed of farro for lunch now and I’m already looking forward to having it again with your best grilled chicken for dinner! What can I say – it’s a perfect blending of bright flavors with a touch of heat. Thanks again!

  3. This is a simple dish and delicious in deed like I also saw inn101easyrecipes.com many years ago.

  4. Delicious and my sister is obsessed with the stuff – only thing is I used a *lot* more olive oil than is mentioned in this recipe – and when sis tried to adhere to only a 3tbsp of oil, she ended up with burned garlic.

  5. Most delicious cauliflower ever! I squeezed lemon juice and sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on it at the end.

  6. This was delicious. Great flavors and so easy to make. In the words of my 5 year old daughter: “I just love this.” Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  7. 6 servings? Either mine was a small cauliflower, or it was simply so good that I had to stop myself from eating it all at once! When I cut it as directed, I ended up with only a few actual slices as shown in the picture, a lot of medium florets, and some crumbles which got super-brown, crisp and with the toasted/caramelized pieces of garlic made a wonderful ‘topping’ sprinkled over the larger pieces. This is a real winner, thank you!

    1. Thanks and I will adjust the serving size down to 2-4. Brian and I eat this easily between the two of us, but I wasn’t sure others would would as much! Glad you liked it.

  8. I made this for lunch and it was very yummy, thank you!! I substituted pine nuts for coriander seeds but still loved it!
