Mustard-Roasted Whole Cauliflower

Mustard-Roasted Whole Cauliflower

I have been to so many restaurants in NY that serve whole roasted caulfilower and I have been dying to make my take on it! This is my first attempt and it was delicious -- I was hesitant to share the recipe because I believe I can make it yet better! But for now enjoy this delicious take on it and wait for more to come.... !! 

  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried chives
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt (I use Himalayan salt)
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp chili pepper flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F
  2. Trim the outer leaves off the cauliflower and cut the stem flush with the rest of the head so it can sit straight. 
  3. Fill a sauce pan 3/4 with water and bring to a boil, bring to a simmer and add cauliflower in for 5 minutes. 
  4. Meanwhile combine the ingredients in a glass measuring cup and mix well with a fork until well combined.
  5. Remove the cauliflower from the sauce pan and place on a paper napkin to drain the water and dry the cauliflower.
  6. Place the cauliflower in a lined cooking pan then pour the mixture over the cauliflower and rub it all over the cauliflower with your fingertips until it's completely coated.
  7. Put the lid on and pop in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until tender.
  8. Take the lid off, set the oven to broil and place the cauliflower under the broiler for 5 minutes, or until it gets beautifully golden brown.
  9. Carefully transfer the cooked cauliflower to a plate, garnish with a handful of fresh chopped parsley and serve.
