Roasted Cauliflower With Kale

Kale seems to be the new "go to" salad! Found on many restaurants menus these days, with a host of variations. Most recently, I dined at a local restaurant pairing it with cauliflower and it was so good I decided to make my own rendition of such. So here is my version of Roasted Cauliflower with Kale which is great both as a salad or a side dish with dinner.

Roasted Cauliflower With Kale


  • 1 head of cauliflower (about 4 cups)
  • olive oil
  • 1 bunch of kale, (any type, about 4 cups), cut into thin strips across the stem
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • additional lemon slices for garnishing
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut cauliflower into florets, and then toss in olive oil, enough to lightly coat all the florets. Layer evenly on a roasting pan and sprinkle salt and pepper on top for seasoning. Place in oven and roast until tender, about 35-40 minutes. (It’s nice to get a bit of brown color around the edges.) 
  3. Place the kale strips into a large bowl. Add a generous amount of olive oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Using your hands massage the leaves until the kale becomes tender and wilted (the volume in your bowl will reduce by about half). Add the lemon juice and dijon mustard, using your hands to work it all together. Taste and adjust with more salt and pepper for desired flavor. 
  4. Toss in the roasted cauliflower and hemp seeds. Serve at room temperature and enjoy!
  5. Store any leftover salad in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
