The Best Easy Whole Sumac Roasted Cauliflower Recipe – super simple roasted whole cauliflower for a tender, delicious, never bitter cauliflower flavor everyone loves! If you’re looking for a delicious, easy, and super simple spin on cauliflower (that actually tastes great), look no further. This whole roasted cauliflower is a knockout – full of flavor, and incredibly healthy. We’re slow roasting an entire head of cauliflower to help reduce the bitter flavor, and bring out a really simple, delicious nutty and buttery flavor that even picky eaters love – this is one of my all time favorite ways to eat cauliflower!


Roasting cauliflower is incredibly easy – it just needs to be prepped, and then thrown in the oven.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius.

Remove stem and any leaves from cauliflower head.

Cover cauliflower in olive oil, rub in well.

Season with salt, pepper, sumac and dried mint.

Place in baking dish and cover with foil.

Roast for 30 minutes with foil.

Remove foil and continue to roast until golden brown and softened, about 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool – cauliflower will be extremely hot.

Slice and serve.


Serve over your favourite dip, I like to serve it with hummus.


Rich flavors

Tender inside, golden outside

Just 10 minutes of active prep time, and the rest is hands-off

Looks and sounds fancy, but super easy to make – it’s the best roasted cauliflower head!

Naturally gluten-free, healthy, low carb, and keto friendly

Perfect as a side dish or as the main course

Packed with flavor
