Easy and Healthy Cauliflower Recipe

Cooking Tips: Be sure not to overcook cauliflower! Cut cauliflower florets into quarters and let sit for 5 minutes before cooking.

To speed up cooking time you can chop the cauliflower into small pieces, put it in a bowl with a tablespoon or so of water and microwave it for about 5 – 6 minutes while preparing the rest of the dish. When the cauliflower starts to soften, drain it well, put on the baking sheet and toss with the other ingredients. This will cut your roasting time down to about 15 minutes or so.

Don’t throw away the cut off pieces from your cauliflower. Cutting up a head of cauliflower is usually a bit messy, save the little bits and pieces that fall off and cut up the stem very small to make a delicious cauliflower soup for lunch the next day.

Cauliflower, a cruciferous vegetable, is in the same plant family as broccoli, kale, cabbage and collards. It has a compact head (called a “curd”), with an average size of six inches in diameter, composed of undeveloped flower buds. The flowers are attached to a central stalk. When broken apart into separate buds, cauliflower looks like a little tree, something that many kids are fascinated by.

  1. This turned out wonderful, I made it on the grill the other night. It’s way too hot to turn on the oven these days. Thank you for sharing the recipe. Oh and I love the close up picture of the ingredients, so yummy.

    1. Hi Annie, I’m very happy your cauliflower dish turned out well, even on the grill. Nick’s been talking about buying a grill, we’re thinking of getting a small electric grill for the Ohana we’re staying in. Walmart has them on sale online for around $50 with free shipping to Hawaii. :)

      I would wrap the cauliflower, mushrooms, etc. tightly in aluminum foil and cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes. Is that what you did?

      Aloha,
      Silke
