Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

September 7, 2018

Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower is the best way to eat cauliflower. Nothing beats those crispy cheesy edges and how incredibly easy it is to make.

Hi Friends! Melanie here again from Garnish & Glaze to bring you a delicious side dish that will turn you into a veggie lover. This Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower is sure to be your new favorite side at dinner.

For the longest time cauliflower was super low on my list of favorite vegetables. Honestly, when eaten raw it makes me bloated and have the worst burps and it’s just not very tasty when steamed. As usual, things always taste loads better when roasted and that’s true for cauliflower too! Then you add Parmesan cheese and wow! You’ll be kicking yourself for not having made cauliflower like this sooner.

How to Make Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

Remove the outer green leaves and cut the cauliflower head into florets. Place the florets on a large rimmed baking sheet, drizzle the cauliflower with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss them together with your hands and then pop them in the oven.

After 20 minutes of roasting you’ll give the cauliflower a toss and then sprinkle it with the Parmesan cheese and roast another 10 minutes until it’s melted and the cauliflower is nice and browned on the edges.

Oh my goodness guys, you will not be able to resist snagging the florets right from the pan and popping them in your mouth. I seriously ate at least 1/3 of a head of cauliflower. I’m pretty sure that’s the most cauliflower I’ve ever eaten in one sitting.

Serve this along side any meat. It’s great as a side to Balsamic Glazed Slow Cooker Pork Loin or Honey Garlic Chicken. Enjoy!
