Easy whole roasted cauliflower recipe with just a few simple ingredients like olive oil, salt and paprika. 


  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Take your cauliflower and cut off the leaves and stems so the cauliflower can lie flat on the pan.
  3. Rub the olive oil, garlic, salt and paprika over the cauliflower and then place a piece of parchment loosely on top and around it.
  4. Roast it for about 20 minutes and then remove the parchment and roast for another 5-8 minutes or until the top is slightly crispy and the cauliflower slightly softened.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!


  • You may need to adjust cooking time according to the size of the cauliflower.
