Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Green Herb Sauce

Prep: 15 mins
Total: 1 hr 15 mins
Serves 8-10


  • 1Preheat oven to 450°. Place cauliflower on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Brush with 1/4 cup oil; season with salt and pepper. Pull short sides of parchment over cauliflower and fold one end over other a few times to seal. Fold long ends of parchment under cauliflower to create a packet. Roast until knife-tender, about 40 minutes. Tear open parchment at top; roast until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes more.
  • 2Stir together parsley, cilantro, garlic, mustard, vinegar, and remaining 1/2 cup oil in a small bowl to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Serve cauliflower warm, with sauce alongside.


  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup packed chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 cup packed chopped fresh cilantro leaves and stems
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
