Garlic Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower
- 1 head cauliflower
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp grated parmesan
- 1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
- 1/2 bunch fresh parsley
- to taste salt and pepper
STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Remove the outer leaves from the cauliflower. Cut the head in half and then into quarters. Cut the core off of each quarter and then break into bite sized florets (see photos). Rinse the florets well under running water.
STEP 2: In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, minced garlic, and 1/4 cup of grated parmesan. Mix to combine. Add the cauliflower florets and stir until they are well coated with the garlic cheese mixture.
STEP 3: Turn the coated florets out onto a baking sheet (covered with foil for easy clean up) and spread into a single layer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in the 400 degree oven for 45 minutes, giving them a quick stir every 15 minutes. Before the final 15 minutes of cooking, sprinkle the last 2 Tbsp of parmesan over top.
STEP 4: While the cauliflower is roasting in the oven, rinse the parsley, shake dry and then roughly chop. Sprinkle the parsley over the cauliflower after it finishes roasting.
