My friend brought this to a party and it was a crowd favorite!


1 large head of cauliflower

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

Salt and pepper to taste

Chopped fresh parsley or cilantro to decorate


Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Prepare the cauliflower by removing the leaves and trimming the stem so it lies flat.

Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, paprika and turmeric to make a marinade. Spice with salt and pepper.

Place the cauliflower in a baking dish, applying the marinade evenly.

Cover with foil and roast for 30 minutes, then uncover and roast for another 20-30 minutes until golden brown.

Let it rest, decorate with herbs and serve.

Variations and tips:

Add red pepper flakes or cayenne for a spicy touch.

Ground cumin or smoked paprika add a smoky flavor.

Capers can be added for a salty flavor.

Roast with root vegetables for a complete meal.

Remember to adjust roasting times based on the size of the cauliflower. This versatile dish is perfect for experimenting with flavors and will be a sure hit with any meal. Enjoy your culinary journey with this impressive and healthy dish!
