Why I Love Roasted Cauliflower
I have been roasting a lot of veggies lately trying to recover from the gluttonous sweet-eating I indulged in over the holidays. I absolutely love roasting vegetables because it’s so easy and versatile. Last week I shared my favorite roasted vegetables recipe with mixed veggies but today I’m keeping it super simple with this delicious Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower recipe!
How to Roast Cauliflower
Roasting cauliflower is very easy, fast and simple to customize to your own taste. You simply toss the cauliflower with your favorite seasonings such as lemon juice, garlic powder, cracked red pepper, minced garlic, or like in this recipe, Parmesan cheese and olive oil. After you toss the cauliflower you bake it for about 20 minutes, then toss it on the pan and bake an additional 20 minutes. If you are adding cheese to the basic roasted cauliflower I bake for thirty minutes then toss and top with cheese, then bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
Simple Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower
It’s hard to imagine making a recipe any more simple than this one. It turns out perfectly though. You can use either shredded or grated Parmesan cheese to make this side dish also. Or even experiment with other cheeses like Asiago! It’s perfect for low carb or keto diets as well.
