Roasted Honey & Garlic Cauliflower with Spinach, Onion, and Mint Pesto

This is a simple, sweet way to serve cauliflower that has extra flavor and panache than a simple roasted dish. I love the way the pesto adds a hint of citrus and greens to the honey baked veggie. It’s a filling and easy to serve dish that wows a crowd, for sure.

Prep Time
Cook Time
  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into small bite size pieces
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of my Spinach, Spring Onion, and Mint Pesto (Link to full Recipe in Instructions)
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into small bite size pieces, removing the stem and leaves completely.
  3. Place the cauliflower pieces into a medium sized bowl and drizzle honey, garlic, and salt on top. Mix together so it is evenly coated. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. olive oil.
  4. Place onto a lined baking sheet and spread out so it is in a single layer, so that all of the pieces roast evenly.
  5. Roast for 15-20 minutes until the cauliflower has begun to brown and become crispy.
  6. Meanwhile, make a batch of my Summertime’s Best Pesto: Spinach, Green Onions, and Mint.
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature with a Tbsp. of pesto on each plate.
