Asian BBQ Roasted Cauliflower


Looking for some other way to cook cauliflower? Try this Asian BBQ Roasted Cauliflower recipe! I am passionate about turning simple ingredients into delicious meals the whole family will enjoy. And this recipe perfectly fits the bill. Oven-roasted cauliflower florets get tossed in Asian-style BBQ sauce and finally baked in the oven for a sticky-sweet glaze. To add some crunch, garnish with roasted peanuts. This recipe is sure to please even the pickiest eaters!

For this recipe, you need one large cauliflower, which yields 6 to 7 cups of florets. Before cutting the cauliflower, remove the large leaves to expose the stem. Using a sharp knife, cut around the stem and remove the core. Using your hands, separate the florets. Cut large florets into smaller pieces to keep them roughly the same size, about 1 to 2 inches. Don’t throw away those leaves, core, and stem! They are completely edible, nutritious, and totally delicious. You can use them in soups and stir-fries, or roast and toss in a salad.     

To make the Asian BBQ Roasted Cauliflower, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Asian BBQ Roasted Cauliflower


Heat oven and prepare baking sheet


Preheat the oven to 450 ºF and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy clean-up.


Season cauliflower


Toss cauliflower in olive oil and salt until well coated and spread out on the prepared baking sheet.




Roast for 22 to 25 minutes, stirring once halfway through, until golden and charred in spots.


Make Asian BBQ sauce


Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons ketchup, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sweet red chili sauce, 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger, and 1 teaspoon Tom Yum paste or red Thai curry paste.


Dress cauliflower


Drizzle half of the prepared BBQ Sauce over the roasted cauliflower and toss to coat well.


Continue roasting


Place the cauliflower back in the oven and roast until deeply caramelized, tossing every few minutes, 8 to 10 minutes more.



To serve, transfer the roasted cauliflower to a bowl or serving platter and drizzle the remaining Asian BBQ sauce over the top. Garnish with chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro leaves, and enjoy!
