Roasted Whole Cauliflower


You need:

  • A whole cauliflower. Soak in brine for at least 30 mins and then dry it well.
  • A tablespoon of garlic paste.
  • Two tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Paprika or Sriracha powder.

Soaking the cauliflower in brine will help remove most of the worms it usually has. Wash it well under a water tap. But there is no guarantee that all the protein rich worms get out. So its up to you if you want to roast it whole or listen to the sensible woman in the house and cut it into smaller pieces.

Mix garlic paste and olive oil. Rub this all over the cauliflower. Use your fingers to coat each and every corner. Place it on  rack. Keeping a tray underneath the rack and covering the tray with foil will keep your oven safe from any dripping mess.


200 C for an hour is more than enough.

Let it rest for at ten minutes and then sprinkle paprika or sriracha powder.

Enjoy a keto compliant and very low calorie meal.
