If you’re looking for a quick and delicious side dish or snack, look no further than this easy recipe for cauliflower in the oven.




Begin by separating the cauliflower into florets. You’ll want them to be bite-sized pieces, so they cook evenly. Next, bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the cauliflower florets and let them cook for 1 to 2 minutes.


In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, grated cheese, sour cream, a pinch of salt, a dash of black pepper, and some dried garlic. Mix until you have a smooth and creamy consistency. Add the blanched cauliflower florets to the creamy mixture. Gently fold them in, ensuring that each piece of cauliflower is well-coated with the delicious mixture.


Take a baking dish and generously grease it with olive oil. This will prevent the cauliflower from sticking to the dish during baking. Now, transfer the cauliflower and creamy mixture into the greased baking dish. Make sure to spread it out evenly.


Preheat your oven to 200°C (392°F). Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Keep an eye on it; you’ll know it’s ready when the cauliflower turns golden brown and the top becomes nicely crispy.
