Roasted Cauliflower

I’m back in the kitchen now, after a long hiatus, packing in the fruits and veggies in an attempt to purge all the holiday build-up running through the families’ veins.

This is a recipe I tried (and loved) last night. It’s from Great Food Fast, Martha’s publication, and it’s a great keeper, especially if you’re like me and need interesting ways to cook veggies in order to want to eat them. Make sure to try the capers! They make a notable difference in the flavor and are delicious (I have to admit to not having had them in recent memory–they’re really good).

Roasted Cauliflower

  • 1 head (about 2 pounds) cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • 1 teaspoon caper juice


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Trim, and cut cauliflower into small florets; spread in a roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil; season with coarse salt and ground pepper. Toss to combine. Roast, tossing once or twice, until cauliflower is golden brown and tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook garlic cloves, stirring often, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Add capers and caper juice. Pour over cauliflower, and toss to coat.
