Whole Roasted Cauliflower woo hoo!

Whole Roasted Cauliflower woo hoo!

Now you’ve probably seen theses before? But have you ever roasted one? Well let me tell you , you really should.  It’s so flipping easy and everything that easypeasylemonsqueezy is all about.

You use the whole cauliflower and no washing up!! You can rub (dry or wet) anything you fancy on the outside and somehow it becomes the most delicious soft intense tasty cauliflower ever and what a great centre piece for any table. Try experimenting with flavours!

I did mine with Olive Oil, Butter, Parmesan, Salt, Black pepper and Parsley – yum! What a beauty!

So come on guys – have a go! You’ll never boil or steam your cauli again! Just have a go at this Whole Roasted Cauliflower!

Please let me know how you get on and drop me a comment below this post

Cheers & Lovely Lemons Clare x

Ingredients

 

  • 1 medium Cauliflower, leaves  removed and the core at the bottom cut straight across – so it stands in the baking tray
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Salt & Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 25g Parmesan, finely grated
  • Black Pepper
  • Handful of chopped Parsley

Preparation Method

  1. Pre-Heat your oven 200C / 400F / Gas 6
  2. Find yourself a nice deep baking tray
  3. Pop your trimmed Cauliflower in the bottom, drizzle over the 2 tablespoons olive oil, then using your hands, rub the oil all over the cauliflower, season well with Salt & Pepper
  4. Cover the tin with foil – sealing really well and pop your tray on the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 45 minutes (maybe a little longer if you have a large cauliflower)
  5. Remove from the oven, (check its tender by sliding a knife in)  dab the butter all over the top of the Cauliflower, followed by the grated Parmesan and season well
  6. Return to the oven without the foil for 15 minutes until the cauliflower is nice and golden
  7. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with chopped Parsley and dig in!!

I've still not tried cooking a whole cauliflower in the oven. I really should as I keep hearing such good things about it. Your flavourings sound like good ones to start with. #CookBlogShare
