Can we just talk about the color of this garlic rosemary roasted cauliflower for a moment? Doesn’t it just look so darn GOOD? That’s because it is!
It’s smothered in deliciously creamy butter, topped with a sprinkling of pink sea salt and roasted in the oven with fresh rosemary and chopped garlic. Honestly, what could be better, you guys? It’s super simple, super tasty and super nutritious, it checks all the boxes.
First, let’s talk about how simple it is to make. Start by chopping up those cauliflower florets into bite-sized pieces. If you prefer your pieces bigger or smaller, go for it. Just adjust the cook time accordingly. Melt your butter or ghee and mix in your salt, rosemary and minced garlic, and give that a good mix.
Add the florets to a large bowl and add in the garlic, butter, salt and rosemary mixture. Toss to coat the cauliflower. You want it to be as evenly distributed as possible. Transfer to a baking dish and place in the oven. Now for the hard part…wait for 20-25 minutes while the magic happens. After that, it’s time to enjoy!
Next, let’s also talk about how tasty this garlic rosemary roasted cauliflower is. While it’s roasting in the oven, you can smell all of the flavors melding together. There is a nice crunch from the cauliflower, a creaminess from the butter, a sharpness from the garlic, and an earthiness from the rosemary. So much going on, and yet it’s as if they were all made for one another!
Lastly, let’s touch on the nutrition in this bad boy. Cauliflower is a great source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K and numerous antioxidants. It has a large amount of fiber and can help with digestion, plus it’s relatively low in carbohydrates.
Garlic is well-known as an antibaterial, antifungal and also has fantastic antioxidant properties.
Rosemary has great anti-inflammatory benefits, as well as antiseptic properties, and is even touted as an herb to help fight cancer.
So really, you can’t go wrong with this delicious garlic rosemary roasted cauliflower. Not only is it super healthy, but it also tastes amazing!
