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.

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.

Ingredients

  • 6 1/2 cups uncooked cauliflower florets (about 1 large cut small)
  • 3 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • kosher salt and fresh pepper
  • juice of 1/4 lemon
  • 2 tbsp Parmigiano Reggiano (freshly grated)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Combine cauliflower, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper well so all the florets are coated and seasoned.
  • Place in a large shallow roasting pan and place in the center of the oven.
  • Roast for about 25-35 minutes, turning florets occasionally so they are evenly cooked.
  • Remove from oven and top with cheese and some lemon zest and additional salt and pepper if needed.
