Miso Ginger Roasted Cauliflower

This easy side dish from My Fresh Perspective gets its rich flavor from miso, a Japanese condiment that contains gut-friendly probiotics. Cauliflower is also an excellent source of fiber and vitamin C. Ready in just 30 minutes, this fast recipe calls for less than 10 ingredients and makes a great addition to lunch or dinner.

Ingredients for servings

  • 1 large head purple cauliflower

  • 1 large head orange cauliflower

  • For the miso-ginger glaze

  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil or avocado oil

  • 3 tbsp white miso

  • 3 tbsp rice vinegar

  • 2 cloves garlic roughly chopped

  • 2 tsp fresh ginger minced or grated

  • 1 tsp crushed red peppe

  • Cilantro and lime wedges For garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 420ºF (190ºC). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Chop the cauliflower into small bite-sized florets and place them in a very large bowl.

  • Whirl all the ingredients for the miso-ginger glaze in a food processor until it becomes as smooth as possible. It should have the consistency of a paste.

  • Pour the glaze over the cauliflower, coating it as much as possible.

  • Transfer the cauliflower onto the baking sheets, spreading it out into a single layer for even roasting. (You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your oven and baking sheets.)

  • Roast for 25–30 mins or until the cauliflower is charred on the edges.

  • Serve hot, garnished with cilantro and drizzled with lime juice.
