How to Reheat Cauliflower in the Oven
If you have leftover of the oven roasted cauliflower the best way to have them the next night is to reheat the cauliflower in the oven. This keeps the caramelization and keeps the slight crunch that it gets from the oven. You can reheat the cauliflower in the microwave as well. Put the leftover cauliflower on a baking sheet and heat until warmed through.
How Long Does Oven Roasted Cauliflower Last
I like to make a large batch of oven roasted cauliflower and keep it on hand for a few days so that I have an easy side dish. The cauliflower will last about 3 to 4 days when it is stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
