How to Make Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower
I make this roasted cauliflower recipe all of the time because it is so easy to make. When I need a vegetable side dish to go with dinner, I know I can always count on Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower. The ingredient list is short (you only need 5 ingredients) and we always have them on hand. Just make sure you use GOOD grated Parmesan cheese, not the stuff that comes in the shaker bottle. You want to splurge on the good cheese for this recipe.
Here are a few tips for making perfect Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower:
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper of aluminum foil, for easy clean up!
- Cut a head of cauliflower into florets, making sure they are all the same size.
- Place the cauliflower florets and garlic cloves on the large baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Toss until well coated.
- Spread the cauliflower into an even layer, making sure the cauliflower florets aren’t touching. You want to give them space so they don’t steam and get mushy. You want them to roast and crisp up in the oven.
- Place in the oven and roast for 35 minutes, stirring once.
- Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese onto the cauliflower, making sure all of the florets are coated. Place the pan back in the oven and roast for 10 to 15 more minutes, or until the cauliflower is crispy and the Parmesan cheese is starting to brown.
- Garnish with fresh parsley and serve immediately.
