Bob Harper's Roasted Cauliflower

I have never said "Oh boy! I really want some cauliflower tonight."  It has never been one of my favorite veggies, in fact, I am pretty sure this is the first time I have prepared cauliflower.  The recipe was from an episode of the Biggest Loser, and it looked good so I decided to give it a try.  I have to admit it was delicious and I will definitely be repeating this one.  The recipe really did not take a lot of time or effort and had a lot of flavor.  I added spinach because it was in my freezer and I always have to have something green on my plate.  I also did not have time to chop up garlic and skipped out on the fresh thyme because that would have meant a trip to the grocery store.  I used what I had on hand and it turned out great.

1 head of caulflower (cored and cut into florets)
2 tbs of olive oil
2 tbs of red wine vinegar (I think I used more than this.  I love red wine vinegar!)
8 oz frozen or fresh spinach (optional)
spice blend containing garlic (I used Mrs. Dash's garlic & herb)
salt & pepper to taste

1) Preheat over to 400 degrees.  Spread the cauliflower florets and spinach in a baking ban.
2) Drizzle the olive oil and red wine vinegar over the cauliflower and spinach mixture.
3) Sprinkle salt, pepper and spice blend over the veggies.
4) Roast for about 30 minutes until the cauliflower is soft.  


  1. I love cauliflower!! This looks super yummy :) I'm going to try it this week when I make it as a side to my tilapia.

  2. I recommend adding the spinach. It really added a lot. I was only trying to use what I had on hand, but it was definitely a good add.

  3. one word... YUMMY!
