Chef's Notes

After washing, dry cauliflower thoroughly or else the sauce won't stick well. Cauliflower pieces will shrink considerably while cooking; Add fresh dill or another herb to give it a new twist.


  1. I love cauliflower but this was not my favorite dish.
  2. I'm on a pretty strict diet and was getting really sick if steamed cauliflower so searched allrecipes for some other ideas. This really helped change it up for me. At this time, I can't use any oil, so only used a slight spray of Pam for my baking dish, then followed the recipe, but did - Read more ...
  3. I'm not a huge fan of Dijon mustard, but my husband loves it so I was willing to make the "sacrifice".?? found it to be a perfect flavor combination with the mustard not too overwhelming. Couldn't stop eating it!
  4. Dijon Roasted Cauliflower Haiku: "Well, I do declare. This will be THE recipe, for cauliflower." I think 5 stars are for recipes that are absolutely perfect, no substitutes, modifications, or tweaks necessary, and this one is IT. So easy, so flavorful, what a great side dish! I love cauliflower, but this recipe made me love - Read more ...
  5. I will definitely add more dijon mustard or less oil the next time I make this. I used yellow onions (did not have a shallot) and since I love garlic, I used 5 cloves of garlic. Mine was also done in 30 minutes.
  6. Yummy. I usually just roast my cauliflower with olive oil, salt and pepper, and maybe some garlic - but this was a nice change. I might like even a little bolder Dijon flavor, so I may consider either increasing the dijon, or cutting back on the oil to make that flavor come thru even more. - Read more ...
  7. Yes we all liked it its a good something different. I want to try it with different seasonings
  8. Substituted a red onion for the shallot. Followed the rest of the recipe as written. We love it!!!!
  9. This was amazing! I did more of a 50/50 mix. Added a little dried tarragon and a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes. It was so delicious. I didn't have shallot so I just used some onion. I only used a pinch of S&P because it doesn't really need it because of the mustard. I'd swear - Read more ...
  10. For my personal taste, I'll add more dijon mustard the next time, but we enjoyed this. Watch your time, as mine was done in 30 minutes. Very nice side dish.
