Soft inside, but caramelized and a bit of a crunch outside! Yummy! Changes the taste up enough for even cauliflower haters to come to the other side! My family loves it!

Instructions Checklist

  • Place cauliflower in a resealable plastic bag. Add olive oil, Cajun seasoning, and garlic salt to cauliflower; mix until evenly coated. Spread cauliflower in an even layer onto the baking sheet; season with salt. Cover cauliflower with aluminum foil.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until cauliflower are slightly soft, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove foil and toss cauliflower with tongs. Continue roasting until cauliflower are browned and crispy, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Roasting covered with foil in the high temperature steams the cauliflower before caramelizing the surfaces when the foil is removed.

We made this last Saturday the only thing we changed was instead of garlic salt we used garlic powder. Ours turned out a little bit blackend but everyone loved it and even the guys that don't normally eat cauliflower took seconds and thirds. Next time I will cook for 10 min uncovered. Read More

Roasted Cajun Cauliflower Haiku: "We couldn't eat this it was just way too salty. Made us very sad." We were unable to eat this cauliflower b/c of the insane saltiness from the garlic salt Cajun seasoning and regular salt. W/ a drastic reduction in garlic salt (if not exchanging it altogether as the other reviewers did) this cauliflower would be good but I'd give it zero stars as written b/c it was inedible. Read More

As stated in earlier reviews way too salty as made. Cutting Cajun seasoning in half and using garlic powder worked really well. I also used a garlic Parmesan seasoning that I buy from Costco (johnnys) in place of the Cajun and garlic and it turned out really good. Overall good method we didn't used to like or eat cauliflower!

Taking into account other reviews saying it was too salty changed it up a little. Only about a teaspoon of Cajun seasoning garlic powder instead of garlic salt and a 1/4 cup of hot sauce. It was a good alternative to boring cauliflower. Read More

. Way over cooked in time allotted. I liked the concept of Cajun flavoring. Would cook at a lower temperature just with Cajun seasoning and garlic powder. Add salt to taste afterwords. Read More

I tried this tonight and it was delicious. My husband and I both liked it. I used minced garlic from a jar instead of garlic salt because I didn't have the garlic salt and liked it a lot. Will be making this again. Read More
