Oven Roasted Cauliflower

Oven Roasted Cauliflower

Roasting cauliflower brings out its nuttiness flavor and caramelizes the edges. This is such an easy way to prepare it, I 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 for steaks, pork chops or chicken. An irresistible side dish, even to people who don’t like cauliflower.

Ingredients

  • 6 1/2 cups uncooked cauliflower florets, about 1 large cut small
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped

  • juice of 1/4 lemon
  • 2 tbsp Parmigiano Reggiano, freshly grated

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.

  • Place in a large shallow roasting pan and place in the center of the oven.
