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.

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.

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

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.

Excellent. We loved this dish. My teen age daughter was trying to make cookies and kept stopping to eat left over cauliflower!

Best cauliflower ever! I made it with purple cauliflower and it was a stunning side dish.

This was a big hit at my house, followed the recipe. the flavors was great I will make this again for sure. I think next time I'll cook it for just an hour, or at least test it then, it was very soft. Thanks, Happy Cooking

I used coconut butter instead because I didn't want the whole house to be smoky from cooking it in the oven. I also mixed all the ingredients with plain yogurt to allow it to seal in the juices. I think it would be even better if you use mayo. But if you use just the seasoning I think it would be too dry. I just posted pics of my roasted cauliflower. This turned out perfectly. If you serve it while hot it is moist and wonderful. Not sure about leftovers, we didn't have any. So I guess that's a good sign.
