Oven Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower

Oven Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower - A simple, delicious side dish perfect for a weeknight meal or special holiday dinner.

Long before cauliflower was as popular as it is today – we’ve been a huge fan of this versatile vegetable! And I think roasting cauliflower – like we do in today’s recipe for Oven Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower – is one of the best ways to prepare it.

We toss the cauliflower with chopped garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper and extra virgin olive oil – then roast it in a very hot oven until caramelized and tender. As the cauliflower comes out of the oven, we sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top as well.

Prepared this way, this Oven Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower results in an almost nutty flavor.  This simple vegetable side dish is a great addition to any weeknight meal – as well as a great addition to a special holiday menu.

You can also change-up the recipe to suit your tastes: add more or less garlic, more or less cheese, add other herbs and seasonings.  The options are endless!
