Oven Roasted Cauliflower Leaves


This is like finding a $20 bill in the pocket of a jacket you haven’t worn in a while!  Recently @deannacarter posted on her amazing instagram account about chopping the cauliflower leaves right in with the chunks when she roasts her flowerettes….lightbulb…I can roast the leaves?!!  I can’t believe I have been throwing those out!!  I like to use my flowerettes for cauli mash and cauli rice…so I decided to try roasting the leaves all by themselves.  Score…tastes like bok choy!  Super yummy!  Thanks Deanna for the inspiration!!

Oven Roasted Cauliflower Leaves

  • Wash and slice up the leaves.
  • Toss them in a bowl with olive oil and sea salt. My favorite it Maldon…I buy it by the bucket as it is my every day salt.
  • Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Roast at 425 for about 30 min until toasty on the edges…give them a little stir mid-way.

Here they are served with my husband’s Buffalo Cut Chicken Wings and some of my Creamy Cauliflower Leek Soup.

    1. glad you liked it and good to know it works at different temps! We have a Wolf range with only 1 oven, so sometimes we have to coordinate a meal so the temp works for all that is being cooked. Roasted veggies are pretty forgiving, so if I need to I will just cook them at whatever my meat temp is…or we cook our meats on the grill or in the smoker if needed.
