  • 1 medium head of cauliflower
  • 1 Tbsp. cooking oil safe for high heat (i.e. avocado oil, grapeseed oil)
  • 1/4 tsp. each salt, pepper, and garlic powder


  • Cut green leaves off of the bottom of the cauliflower. Slice it in half from top to bottom. Using your hands, pull the cauliflower apart into its natural florets. Slice the largest florets in half.
  • Place florets in colander and rinse well. Using a clean dish towel or paper towels, dry cauliflower thoroughly.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place cauliflower on paper. Drizzle cauliflower with oil, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 14-16 minutes, until tender and crispy. (No need to broil cauliflower at the end.) Do not over-bake. Serve right away!
