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. Pre-heat oven to 425*F
  2. Place cauliflower florets onto a non-stick cookie sheet
  3. Spray florets with olive oil
  4. 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.
  5. Sprinkle ~1tsp of sea salt and a generous amount to coarse ground pepper onto cauliflower and stir.
  6. Lay thinly sliced lemon ontop of cauliflower.
  7. Place cookie sheet with cauliflower into oven. Let bake for 20-25 minutes, remove, stir with a spoon, and return to oven.
  8. Turn oven on broil
  9. Broil cauliflower for about 5 more minutes.
  10. Remove cauliflower from the oven when lightly browned, let cool, and enjoy!
