Some vegetables are just plain better when they are roasted. Cauliflower is one of them for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll eat some raw cauliflower with hummus any day, but I devour it roasted.

Adding a vinaigrette with blue cheese just takes it to the next level. I’ve been thinking of the leftovers ever since I placed them in the fridge…

Roasted Cauliflower with Vinaigrette from Eating Well

  • 1 head cauliflower, sliced into 1″ thick pieces
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp blue cheese crumbles
  • salt & pepper

Roast cauliflower in a 375° oven, about 20 minutes, or until edges start turning brown. Mix remaining ingredients and drizzle over warm cauliflower.

    Cauliflower is so good. I don’t think I’ve ever tried it roasted. I usually steam it or just eat it raw. The next time I buy it I will have to try to roast it!

    I agree with the roasted cauli -can’t eat it steamed anymore. but, blue cheese…this could possibly be the most brilliant idea ever!

    I agree. Cauliflower doesn’t really do it for me. I don’t dislike it but it doesn’t wow me. That looks like super easy dressing too! I’ll give this a try!

    I just bought a cauliflower and hadn’t decided what to do with it. This looks perfect! I may opt for feta instead of blue cheese though! Yum!
    Thanks!

    This is great! I eat a lot of cauliflower, and broccoli and they are both starting to burn me out. I tried this and it was fantastic! Now… do you have anything creative I can do with broccoli?

    Great blog! It’s so true about some vegetables tasting better roasted. Broccoli and brussel sprouts are like that for me. Love your roasted cauliflower recipe!
