But secretly, they also have a place in your fridge and kitchen.

How to Roast Cauliflower Leaves To prepare the leaves, trim off the woody ends of the stem, give the leaves a quick wash, and then throw them in a bowl or plastic bag with some oil and spices. I can’t say enough about dill and garlic powder.  Then, for the transformation, place the oiled leaves in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast in a 400°F oven until they darken and get crispy, about 15 minutes.
