Roasted Cauliflower – Yum

Cauliflower is one of those vegetables that I like and always default to steaming it. Tonight I tried roasted cauliflower and loved it. The rest of the fam did too, so that’s a win-win-win in my book!

Roasted Cauliflower

What You’ll Need to Make Roasted Cauliflower:

  • 1 Head of cauliflower
  • 1-2 cloves of minced garlic (fresh or jarred)
  • 2-3 T. Olive Oil
  • Lemon Juice (fresh or from a bottle)
  • Grated parmesan cheese (fresh or bottled)
  • Baking pan or lipped cookie sheet
  • Foil

Directions for Roasted Cauliflower:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line your pan with foil. (This is optional, but makes clean up WAAAAY easier.)
  3. Separate the head of cauliflower into florets, as big or small as you would like. I made a mix of sizes (larger for adults and smaller for little fingers to grab!)
  4. Place florets in the foil-lined pan.
  5. Spread garlic over top of florets. Put more or less garlic according to your likes. (It ends up being roasted garlic, so it’s oh so yummy!)
  6. Sprinkle lemon juice over the florets. (I used the equivalent of half a medium sized lemon, but again adjust to your liking.)
  7. Drizzle olive oil liberally over the cauliflower.
  8. Place in oven at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. You want it slightly browned/roasted, so just keep an eye on it.
  9. Remove from oven and sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top.
  10. Serve and watch your family gobble it up!
