  1. Preheat oven to 400F

  2. Cut your cauliflower into small florets

  3. Place florets in a bowl

  4. Melt coconut oil and butter in a microwave proof dish in the microwave

  5. Poor melted oil over cauliflower florets

  6. Season with sea salt or other optional toppings (** Except for cheese - add this at the end if using) and mix well

  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread seasoned cauliflower florets over baking sheet

  8. Cook for 40-50 minutes stirring every 15 minutes or so to ensure cauliflower cooks evenly. You know it's done when cauliflower is golden brown all over

  9. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

NOTE: If you are using a smaller head of cauliflower I would limit your oil to 3 TBSP

Other optional toppings: parmesan cheese, ground cinnamon, curry spice, chill powder, paleo friendly seasoning salt

NOTE: Cooking time will vary depending on altitude and size of cauliflower used
