Don't be intimidated by the prep time - all but 20 minutes is inactive time that the cauliflower spends marinating. If sage, thyme and citrus isn't your thing try rubbing a blend of gluten free miso paste and red curry paste over the cauliflower instead. It's so delicious!


  • 4 cloves garlic, quartered
  • zest from 1 orange
  • 1/8 cup fresh thyme leaves,
  • 8 fresh sage leaves, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (1-2 pound ) cauliflower, leaves removed and core trimmed to flatten
  • Herbalicious Citrus Cashew Sauce, recipe follows
  • 1/8 cup fresh flat leaf parsley leaves, chopped


  1. Place the garlic, zest, thyme, sage, salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste on a cutting board. Chop until the mixture is a rough paste, similar to cornmeal. Rub the head of cauliflower all over with the olive oil then rub the paste all over the cauliflower. Transfer to a large storage bag and seal tightly. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator 6-8 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  3. Place the cauliflower into a baking dish and bake for 30-40 minutes. Bake time will depend on the oven and the size of the cauliflower. Check to see if the cauliflower is done by inserting a sharp knife into the center - it should slip right through. Once the cauliflower is tender you may want to place it under the broiler for 3 or 4 minutes to caramelize the outside.
  4. Serve with Herbalicious Citrus Cashew Sauce and fresh parsley.
