Steam it first

I love to use my instant pot to get this Keto Roasted Cauliflower Head recipe started. You can steam the head over the stove top if you do not have an IP.

Just 2 minutes on steam in the IP, get the head of cauliflower fork tender. You don’t want it to be too soft as you will be baking this dish

Cheese Topping

Who knew that a simple mix of mayo and parmesan cheese could give a delicious topping? With loads of flavor there is no need to add any salt to the Keto Roasted Cauliflower Head.

A quick bake…

After the quick steam you slather on the mayo and cheese mix all over the top of the cauliflower. Sprinkle the entire top with garlic powder and pepper.

Pop the Keto Roasted Cauliflower Head into the 375* oven for 15 minutes. The last 1-2 minutes of baking turn your oven up to broil. Watch as your cauliflower gets toasty and crispy brown. YUM!


Slice your Keto Roasted Cauliflower Head into 6 wedges. This is quite lovely to do table side for a nice presentation for a small dinner party.
