Wow Your Table with This Beautiful Whole Roasted Cauliflower

I truly love cauliflower in any shape or form. This recipe is really easy and so delicious and so beautiful on the table. Perfect for the high-holidays or just a fancy dinner on a weeknight.



  • 1 cauliflower head
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder or 2 fresh cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • Oil spray


1). Clean and soak cauliflower head in deep salted water for 10-15 minutes, wash and place in a glass bowl with 2 cups water. Place in the microwave for 10 minutes. ( OR best if you cook it  in boiling water on the stove for exactly  8 minutes.)

Preheat your oven to 375 on a “roast” feature.

2). Meanwhile, prepare the coating: In a small bowl mix together the mustard, honey, curry powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

3). Carefully take the cauliflower out of the microwave/pot, pat-dry with a paper towel. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the sauce really well all over the cauliflower. Generously sprinkle panko breadcrumbs. Spray a little oil and bake for 35-40 minutes uncovered until golden brown.

4). Let cool 5-7 minutes before slicing


Another option is to coat the cauliflower with

  • 2 tbsp mayo (I use vegan)
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Panko breadcrumbs
  • oil spray

Bake on 375 for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
