  • 1 medium cauliflower 1-1/2 pounds - cut into florets
  • 2 large lemons halved
  • 1 small head garlic - stem and dirt removed but kept in skin
  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. (My note: Line the cookie sheet with aluminum foil for easier clean up)
  • Spread cauliflower onto baking sheet. Place lemons on the same pan, halves flat side down.
  • Put garlic in a small foil packet and close.
  • Roast garlic for 25 minutes; cauliflower and lemons for 40 minutes (My note: I found 40 minutes to be too long for the lemons, I would recommend 25 minutes for the lemons as well)
  • Allow the garlic to rest in foil 10 minutes Then open packet and pop the garlic cloves out of their skins. Set aside. (My note: cut the top off the head of garlic to make this step easier)
  • Allow cauliflower and lemon to cool 10-15 minutes. Once cool, squeeze lemons into a small bowl removing seeds.
  • Using a food processor with the S blade, add cauliflower, lemon juice, roasted garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Process until smooth, about 1-3 minutes. Scrape bowl and run again to incorporate small bits.
  • Scoop into a serving dish or jar and refrigerate until cold. Serve with fresh vegetables or crackers
  • Enjoy!


Danielle's Tip: Roasting the three main ingredients adds another level of flavor and gives the lemons a deeper concentrated taste. With that said, juice from un-roasted lemons will do just fine.
