OK, this recipe is a little different, it’s really not that old, and I must admit that I heard a version of it from someone else, but like all cooks, I decided to mess with the recipe and the idea and came up with my own version that I really like, and one that my Family seems to enjoy as well.  Even my Mother likes it and pleasing that woman in the kitchen is almost impossible.

So here it is possibly a new memory created in an Ozark Kitchen.



Roasted Cauliflower


2-3 Heads Cauliflower, cleaned and cut into flowerets.

¼ Cup Olive Oil

1 tsp. Black Pepper

1 pkg. Ranch Dressing Mix

½ Cup grated Parmesan Cheese


 Heat oven to 435 degrees.

Place cauliflower into a gallon size zip-lock bag. Add oil and shake well add spices and cheese and mix well coating as much of the cauliflower as possible.

Place cauliflower on roasting pan, or sheet pan and cook in hot oven for 15-20 minutes or until slightly beginning to brown.


This is fantastic, and though you can play with the recipe to lower sodium, it is actually a pretty low-fat dish. And it’s really good!

My new favorite way to cook cauliflower. I have not added the ranch dressing mix and cheese though. Just a little oil. Also throw any other veggies on the pan: sliced carrots, onions, sweet peppers, asparagus, green beans. Whatever you have. I usually bake them (roast them?) at least 1/2 hour. They're so delicious.

This is my new favorite roasted vegetable without the ranch..too much sodium.

Thank you so much for this recipe-I love what you did to change this up from the original recipe! I too have picky eaters in my house and you are right...even they loved it! Have you submitted it to the people who make the ranch dressing? I really think you should-might even make a contest winner!

About Me
I have been cooking since i was 12 years old, got my first job in a restaurant when I was 14. I was trained by a professional Cook, also my Mother and Grandmother who had deep roots in the country style as well as the Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking.
My favorite things to cook
All though I can cook almost anything, my favorite thing to cook is breads. I have making homemade breads, rolls and baked goods since I was 18 and I am now 50!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Almost all of my Family Recipes center around Country Cooking, with a Dutch flare, or style. My family all comes from the deep country where you cooked what you raised.
My cooking triumphs
I once prepared and served a Banquet for President Bill Clinton when he was Governor of Arkansas. Multiple Blue Ribbons at the Arkansas State Fair as well as the Arkansas-Oklahoma State Fair.
My cooking tragedies
Once cooked a Standing Rib Roast that was so tough you needed a Skill Saw to slice it and it was already on the table.
