Blasted Cauliflower with Eggs

Seeing cauliflower served raw on a veggie platter makes me want to wrinkle my nose in distaste. Take that same cauliflower and blast it in a hot oven and it hardly seems like the same vegetable. Soft, with a buttery sweetness, I can’t get enough, popping florets in my mouth even before it’s been transferred to a serving bowl and placed at the dinner table. The mustard and red pepper flakes add some kick and the surprising addition of a hard boiled egg ties the whole thing together. It makes a wonderful side dish at dinnertime.

Blasted Cauliflower with Eggs


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into medium florets
  • Olive oil
  • ¼ to 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
  • ¼ cup pine nuts
  • ¼ cup golden raisins
  • ¼ tsp dried mustard
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 450 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a large bowl, toss cauliflower with olive oil, red pepper flakes, pine nuts, raisins, mustard and salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer on prepared sheet.
  3. Bake until they’re golden and caramelized on the edges, about 30-45 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. Chop the eggs and sprinkle them over the cauliflower, along with another drizzle of olive oil.

Serve immediately.
