Cauliflower: One of the Best Low-Carb Vegetables

If you're not a fan of cauliflower, you haven't tried this delicious recipe yet!

There’s so much to love about cauliflower. We love using it to make cauliflower rice versions of our favorite dishes, like fried rice or stir-fry. It’s fantastic for vegetarian dishes, like coconut cauliflower curry or whole roasted cauliflower. So using it for a low-carb veggie side dish or snack and making Roasted Lemon and Dill Cauliflower just makes a lot of sense.

Cauliflower has a mild taste, so you can use it in place of high-carb grains like rice or starchier vegetables like potatoes. It does contain 5 grams of carbs per serving, but 3 of those grams are fiber. In addition to its low-carb status, cauliflower also contains many nutrients, including vitamin K, vitamin C, folate, potassium, and manganese.

Why High-Temperature Roasting Works

This roasted lemon and dill cauliflower makes the perfect, low-carb side dish!

If you’ve already browsed through the recipe card, you may have noticed that we instruct you to roast the cauliflower in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven. Before you get scared of cooking at such high temperatures, hear us out. The high temperature is absolutely critical to pulling off the best possible Roasted Lemon and Dill Cauliflower.

You see, the hot oven will not only cook the cauliflower faster, but it will also make it crispier. The key to this recipe is ensuring that the cauliflower is soft in the middle and crispy on the outside. If you cooked it in a 350 degree oven, it would never crisp up on the outside. Similarly, a 500 degree oven would burn the outsides before they cooked through in the middle.
