Recipe - Whole Roasted Cauliflower

This wonderful recipe is served at Miznon restaurants and a creation of the renowned Israeli Chef, Eyal Shani.


  • 1 medium-sized cauliflower
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Salt


  • To prep the cauliflower, slightly cut the base while keeping the leaves intact (make sure to enjoy these as they are packed full of goodness and often go to waste)
  • Bring a pot of very salty water to a rolling bubble and boil the cauliflower for about 7 minutes. It’s ready when you’re able to pierce it with a fork, but still feels a little firm. 
  • Take the cauliflower out of the water and place on a baking tray to cool. 
  • Once cooled, rub the cauliflower thoroughly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  • Roast in a preheated oven (480 ºF) until beautifully golden brown. 
  • Serve warm with an additional drizzle of olive oil and pinch of salt.
