The BEST Low-Carb Roasted Cauliflower Recipes
Every Friday we spotlight low-carb recipes you might want to try over the weekend and this week we’re exploring the delicious possibilities of roasted cauliflower!
I am well aware that there are some people who “don’t like” cauliflower, so let’s just have that conversation. If you’ve tried roasted cauliflower and still didn’t like it, then okay, you might be a confirmed cauliflower hater. BUT, if you’ve never been that fond of cauliflower but you haven’t had roasted cauliflower, I beg you to give one of these amazing Low-Carb Roasted Cauliflower Recipes a try!
Roasting cauliflower brings out a sweetness and nuttiness that other cauliflower preparation methods just can’t produce. And there is none of that unwanted smell that’s sometimes associated with cooking cauliflower; cauliflower roasting in the oven smells amazing.
And roasted vegetable weather is here or almost here in most parts of the U.S. (and if you live farther north, start roasting vegetables immediately!) If you try one of the roasted cauliflower recipes, please come back and tell us what you think.

The word Sriracha always catches my eye in a recipe title, and I’m positive I’d love this Sriracha Roasted Cauliflower from White on Rice Couple. (This recipe comes from their amazing cookbook Bountiful; check it out when you grab the cauliflower recipe!)
This Roasted Cauliflower Rice with Red Pepper, Green Onion, Parmesan, and Pine Nuts from Kalyn’s Kitchen was the first time I tried roasting Cauliflower Rice, and it was amazing. I think this is pretty enough to be a holiday side dish!

I just updated my photos for this Roasted Cauliflower with Parmesan from Kalyn’s Kitchen and wrote about a new-and-improved preparation method that made this even more of a WOW! This is an absolute must-try, trust me on that!
Balsamic Vinegar is one of my preferred ingredients to use on roasted vegetables, but I’ve never thought of balsamic on cauliflower and this Balsamic and Garlic Roasted Cauliflower from The Joyful Foodie sounds like a home run to me! Use good aged balsamic for best flavor here.
I am 100% intrigued by this whole Roasted Spicy Cauliflower from Apron Strings. Donna says she doesn’t like cauliflower, but this recipe won her over. Be sure to check out the interesting cooking method that creates that spicy crust on the outside of the cauliflower; this sounds like a winner!
Roasted cauliflower doesn’t need a lot of seasoning to make it amazing, but this Roasted Spicy Cauliflower from Kalyn’s Kitchen has just enough added heat to make it really, really good. (And I felt inspired to take new photos for this recipe when it suddenly got popular in the middle of the summer!)
Thai Roasted Cauliflower with Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce from All Day I Dream About Food sounds like a winner to me! Carolyn says the roasted cauliflower is so good, you almost don’t need the dipping sauce!
