Roasting cauliflower florets with rosemary and sage turns them into crispy nuggets, and the caramelized onions are so sweet. This amazing cauliflower dish is from Lynne Rosetto Kasper, retired host of The Splendid Table.


  • 1 large cauliflower broken into florets and sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 2 medium red onion, cut into half rings
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, thinly sliced or 6-8 whole garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 6 fresh sage leaves
  • Rosemary leaves from a 3-inch branch
  • 23 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425º.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and distribute olive oil on the cauliflower.
  3. Rub the bottom of a roasting pan or half sheet pan with olive oil with additional olive oil.
  4. Spread the mixture out on the pan, trying not to overlap.
  5. Roast cauliflower for 45 minutes or until cauliflower is tender and golden brown, turning every 15 minutes.


If you roast whole garlic cloves, they can be pinched out of their paper-like “jackets”  and eaten whole or spread on bread.
