This gluten free roasted cauliflower recipe is super easy and a favorite side dish in many families.Â When vegetables are roasted, a great flavor results with a nice tender inside remaining.
The optional butter coating as a final step makes this gluten free roasted cauliflower recipe extra delish. This is not a Paula Deen recipe, but I call that the “Paula Deen” version since she is all about butter flavor.
The dish is served either after roasting or after tossed in butter.Â It just depends on your taste.Â We like to simply roast when we are having this at home with a regular dinner but when company comes over we add the butter step to make it extra delish!

Optional gluten free roasted cauliflower yumminess: After cauliflower is roasted, melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat.Â Cook butter about 3 minutes or until butter turns a light brown color. In a bowl, combine roasted cauliflower and browned butter.Â Toss to coat.
