Homemade Staples: Roasted Cauliflower (with Truffle Oil)


I love cauliflower and one of the simplest (but tastiest) ways of preparing it is roasting.  It makes a great addition to any meal.  To dress up the dish and give it a more elegant flavor , I like to add a little parmesan cheese and a drizzle of truffle oil once removed from the oven.

Roasted Cauliflower

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • Olive oil, to taste
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Cracked black pepper, to taste
  • Parmesan cheese, shredded (optional)
  • Truffle oil (optional)

Preheat the oven for 375 degrees.

Toss cauliflower florets with olive oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl.  Pour into a jelly pan.

Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees.  Remove from oven and stir.  Bake for another 10 minutes, or until slightly tender.

If desired, immediately top with parmesan cheese and drizzle with truffle oil after removing from the oven.

      Truffle oil is really flavorful and can brightens up a lot of dishes. It tends to be a bit on the expensive side but a few drops is all you need for a dish. And if you store it in the fridge when you’re not using it, the oil will stay fresh and last a very long time.
