Honey Garlic Roasted Cauliflower


There are many delicious ways to cook cauliflower and this recipe has become one of the favourites in our household. This dish is sweet, yet little spicy at the same time and is, definitely a hit at the party. “THE” best way to cook cauliflower in oven and just tossing it with honey sauce makes this recipe quite easy and quick. Your oven does most of the work for you so relax while you prepare a delicious and yummy side dish.

Serves: 3-4
Preparation time: 3-4 mins.
Cooking time: 15 mins.


To roast cauliflower:
1 head cauliflower (cut into bite-size florets)
Salt to taste
Black Pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil

For the sauce:
1 ½ tablespoon Cornstarch
6 tablespoon cold water
2 cloves garlic finely chopped/minced
1 ½ tablespoon Soy sauce
½ tablespoon sriracha (chilli) sauce
4 tablespoons honey


  1. Wash and cut the cauliflower into bite size florets.
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and place the florets on the baking sheet. Brush the cauliflower with olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper as per your taste.
  1. Place the baking sheet into the oven and roast the cauliflower for 10-15 minutes until it is cooked. It should be tender but a little crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, we can prepare the sauce on stove. In a small saucepan, mix all the ingredients for the sauce except cornstarch and water. Bring to a low boil and stir until blended.
  1. Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl until smooth and lump free. Add this mixture to the sauce and mix well. The sauce will start to thicken. Keep stirring until sauce is thick enough to coat the cauliflower.
  1. Cauliflower would be roasted by now, so you can take it out from oven.
  1. Switch off the flame and wait for 5 minutes so that the sauce cools down.
  2. Put the roasted cauliflower into a large bowl and pour in the sauce. IMG_0149.JPG
  3. Mix the cauliflower and sauce well enough to coat all the florets evenly.
  1. Serve warm and garnish with scallions. ( I was not having them handy so skipped.)

  • Before mixing sauce and cauliflower, make sure that cauliflower is has cooled down else it will make your sauce runny.
