Making cauliflower is the perfect vegetable if you are looking to go low carb. I love using it as a substitute in certain recipes like swapping with potatoes in my Loaded Cauliflower Mash, or for rice for Cauliflower Fried Rice, and even as a pasta substitute in my Cauliflower Mac and Cheese.

Roasting cauliflower really brings out its’ nutty flavor and I love how it caramelizes the edges. This recipe is so easy to prepare. I just toss it with garlic, lemon juice and olive oil and top it with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and some lemon zest when it comes out of the oven.

I can eat a whole bowl of this for lunch, but I usually make this as a side. You can serve it with steaks, pork chops or chicken. An irresistible side dish, even for people who don’t like cauliflower.

Hope you enjoy!
