Colorful Roasted Cauliflower With Oranges and Almonds

Roasted Cauliflower is delicious. Roasted orange and purple cauliflower is even better. I found some beautiful, and not to mention colorful, organic orange and purple cauliflower at the farmer’s market the other day and I was just dying to make something with it. I decided to go ahead and roast it but also thought I would add some oranges to give it a little citric flavor and some sliced almonds for some crunch. I have to say this is so good! No idea why I have not tried this combination before? I think I can eat the entire bowl! 

Roasted Cauliflower With Oranges and Almonds


  • 1 each whole orange and purple cauliflower (cut into florets)
  • 1 orange; peeled and separated into sections
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • juice from one whole lemon
  • pinch of cumin
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spread out florets in a single layer on a large cookie sheet lined with foil.
  3. Sprinkle the minced garlic and cumin over the florets.
  4. Squeeze lemon juice, evenly coating florets.
  5. Generously drizzle on the olive oil; and toss to coat.
  6. Sprinkle sea salt and pepper over florets (about one teaspoon total).
  7. Bake for 45 minutes (tossing occasionally) or until tender and browned on top
  8. Transfer to a large bowl; add orange segments and sliced almonds and toss gently.
  9. Serve and enjoy!
