Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix butter, dill, garlic, lemon zest, cumin, salt, and ground black pepper in a bowl.
  3. Cut cauliflower stem flush with the rest of the head so it can stay upright in a casserole dish. Spread butter mixture evenly over the top and sides of cauliflower, place in a casserole dish, and cover with foil.
  4. Roast in the preheated oven until tender and cooked through, about 1 1/4 hours. Transfer to a platter and spoon any liquid in the casserole dish over the cauliflower.

OMG i loved this after i made a few changes.. instead of 1/4 cup butter i used 2 tbsp olive oil.. 1 tsp dried dill for fresh.. and 1 tsp garlic powder for fresh.. i cut the cauliflower into florets and added all the ingredients in a large zip lock bag to combine.. then baked the cauliflower in a greased 2 quart glass dish at 450 for approximately 25 minutes.. turning half way through.. did not cover with foil.. this was beyond awesome.. ty for a starting point

This recipe was a disappointment for us. I always try do a recipe exactly the first time but I didn't have fresh dill so I used 1 tsp of dried as another reviewer mentioned. Cooked mine for 1-1/2 hrs then put it under the broiler to get some browning. The florets seemed to be the right tenderness but the interior parts were inedible. There wasn't any pan drippings. I just know there is a roasted cauliflower out there with my name on it but this wasn't it! Will try the "steaks" next time

This cauliflower recipe is remarkable. I follow it pretty much as it reads and have now made it twice and after the first time shared with my mom who entertains all the time and she loved it as well. I'm in Wisconsin so fresh dill is nonexistence for at least half of the year but a tsp. of dill weed works very nicely. My husband and I both agree that after this last one, we need to get two heads of cauliflower, we obviously do not play well when it comes to this dish and need one to call our own.

I've been wanting to roast cauliflower for some time now and am very happy to have found this recipe. I loved that I could roast the whole head intact instead of having to cut it into florets. I did use low-fat butter (Land O' Lakes spreadable) and used 1 t. dried dill instead of 1 T. fresh dill. The seasoning combination was great.

Made it tonight, and it's a great suggestion that's really easy to vary.

I like this dish. I've never used cumin, lemon zest, and dill together. I liked the depth of flavor it gave to this vegetable.

I like the basic premise of this recipe, but I like the cauliflower cut up and then placed in a plastic bag with marinade ingredients and shaken. The inside of the cauliflower tasted steamed when I cooked it whole.

I followed the recipe exactly and we've been eating this regularly. I wouldn't change a thing about it. Loved cauliflower before. Love it even more now! The whole family looks forward to eating it. Making it again tonight!
