Lemon Roasted Cauliflower

I love simple vegetable side dishes! Having a meal with at least one vegetable helps ensure you’re getting that minimum of 5 servings of fruits and veggies in per day! The more vegetables you get in a day, the better, despite what anybody else says.

Here’s a simple, yummy side dish for pretty much any meal! Total prep and cook time is about 35 minutes, so very doable for those with a tight schedule.


  • 1 head cauliflower, washed and cut into florets
  • 1 can olive oil spray
  • 3 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1 lemon, cut in half. Keep one half whole, cut second half into thin slices
  • Sea salt
  • Coarse ground pepper


  1. Place cauliflower florets onto a non-stick cookie sheet
  2. Spray florets with olive oil
  3. Squeeze half of a lemon over cauliflower, then sprinkle with pressed garlic, and then . Stir around with hands or a wooden spoon to coat the cauliflower.
  4. Sprinkle ~1tsp of sea salt and a generous amount to coarse ground pepper onto cauliflower and stir.
  5. Lay thinly sliced lemon ontop of cauliflower.
  6. Turn oven onto broil.
  7. Place cookie sheet with cauliflower into oven. Let broil for ~5 minutes, remove, stir with a spoon, and return to oven. Keep an eye on the cauliflower, they are finished when they start to turn brown which is in about 5-10 more minutes.
  8. Remove cauliflower from the oven, let cool, and enjoy!
