Roasted cauliflower is one of my all-time favorite veggie side dishes. It’s so delicious and goes well with really any dinner. I love serving this alongside spaghetti, pesto pasta, pizza, the possibilities are endless!
What I love about this recipe are the flavors that come through by adding lemon juice and minced garlic at the very end of roasting. It adds a burst of flavor and freshness and is such a simple way to upgrade your roasted cauliflower.
My girls love this cauliflower (the recipe works well with broccoli too!) and it’s a great way to get kids to eat more veggies.
