I kept reading articles and recipes online about baking a whole head of cauliflower.  I just had to do it myself to see how it went.  It was fun, and I think it could really be considered a main course with some fun sides.


1 head of organic cauliflower

2 TBSP Nutritional Yeast

2 TBSP Sesame Oil

2 tsp onion powder

2-3 pinches of sea or pink salt

Fresh Ground black pepper to taste

Fresh lemon to taste



Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Peel green stems and leaves from cauliflower, and wash well.

Combine dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl that would fit the head of cauliflower.  Stir with a fork to mix well.

Brush cauliflower head with sesame oil until it’s well coated.

Dip the head of cauliflower into the bowl to thoroughly coat with dry ingredients.

Place cauliflower onto a baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes.

Check cauliflower to make sure it’s tender, and if not, bake until it is easily stabbed with a fork. (Your baking time will vary depending on the size of head you chose.)

Once the cauliflower is cooked, drizzle with olive oil and fresh organic lemon.

Cut the cauliflower pieces and sprinkle with the capers.
