This easy Garlic Roasted Cauliflower is a perfect low-carb side dish for any occasion. It’s well seasoned with garlic and balsamic vinegar and couldn’t be more simple to make.
If you want a way to make vegetables more exciting, then this is the recipe for you! It even got the thumbs up from someone that doesn’t really like cauliflower. Balsamic and garlic roasted cauliflower is my favourite snack at the moment.

I seem to be on a bit of a balsamic kick at the moment, especially after my latest slow cooker recipe. It might have something to do with the huge bottle of it that I bought, now I am just seeing what I can put it on. Turns out, most things.
Let’s face it, cauliflower is not the most exciting thing to eat. Sure, you can use it as an alternative to rice, and it is good in soups, but roasted cauliflower is my favourite way to eat cauliflower. It gives it more of a crunchy texture and it brings out a flavour that is not there when it is boiled or steamed. The addition of balsamic vinegar and garlic is excellent. The balsamic adds a touch of sweetness and the garlic gives it a bit of a kick. You don’t have to cover cauliflower with cheese sauce to enjoy it. Even Mr HHH, who usually hates cauliflower, actually enjoys this. Well, he hates it less, put it that way.
I am going to start putting more side dishes on the blog as well, because I know sometimes your meals are not whole recipes, they are something simple like chicken breast or fish and then you struggle to know what healthy side dishes to have with it. So look out for my side dishes in the coming month. This doesn’t even need to be a side dish to a main meal, I am currently eating these as a snack as I write up this recipe.
I know I said you don’t need to put cheese on cauliflower to enjoy it, but a little grated parmesan sprinkled on top after it has finished cooking really adds something extra to it.
