Late Night Roasted Cauliflower

One of my favorite, easy to make, flavorful, and healthy late night dinners. You can do this in a toaster oven, your main convention oven, and even on the grill if you have a grill basket.

There are two keys to doing this well. First, make best attempt to have the cauliflower pieces cut to uniform size so that they cook evenly. Second, make best attempt to evenly coat the florets with the olive oil and spices.


  • One head of cauliflower cut into uniform chunks
  • Olive oil - 3-4 tablespoons to coat the cauliflower
  • Spice mixture: A couple of options here
    • Spicy - Mix of ancho chile powder, pinch of cayenne, cumin, salt
    • Curry - Curry powder, garlic powder, coriander, salt
    • Herb - Herb de Provence works great mixed with salt


Mix cauliflower with olive oil in a large bowl. Sprinkle on the selected spice mixture evenly. If cooking in an oven, spread on a cookie sheet in one layer and roast at 400F. If cooking on the grill, cook on medium-high heat shaking the basket every 10 minutes. Cook until florets are brown and charred in some places, 20-25 minutes.

For Technologists

Sometimes you just have to go back to the basics, like learning data science principals from fourth grade class rules or what agile teams can learn from first graders.
