Butter roasted cauliflower

I’ve fancied doing a whole roasted cauliflower for a while now and I’m so glad I finally got round to it! This was delicious and my toddler couldn’t get enough of it (good job I made 2 of them!)

The butter soaks through the whole thing as it roasts so it’s certainly not low fat but it is essentially one big vegetable so I’m happy enough with that!


55g butter

Tablespoon of dill

1 clove of garlic

1 tsp ground cumin

Grated rind of 1/2 lemon

Salt & pepper

(Ignore the olive oil in the picture- I ended up not using it!)

Remove the leaves from the cauliflower and cut out the main hard stem being careful not to cut any of the flourets off

In a food processor put the butter, dill and garlic and whizz into a paste

Add the lemon rind, cumin and a little salt and pepper and blend again

Put the cauliflower on a baking tray and spread the butter mixture over the top

Until it’s covered. Put into the oven at 180 degrees for 80mins

Use a skewer to check if it’s cooked all the way through

Cut a wedge out and serve!
