Roasted Parmesan-herb Cauliflower


Perhaps you’ve never considered cooking cauliflower this way ~ roasting the vegetable renders delicious results!




Cauliflower is Bill’s favorite veggie ~ I like it also, so I’m always scouting for new recipes involving it.

I came across this one in Food Network Magazine.  Roasting cauliflower develops its sweetness, with the florets turning out fork-tender, not mushy.  Herbs add great seasoning and crushed red pepper provides snap.

It’s a flavorful side dish that goes with about any meat, for your dinner table tonight, that’s healthy too!

Preheat oven to 425°.

  20. Roasting really does bring out the flavor in cauliflower. The next time you make it, try adding a little panko breadcrumbs to your mix. :)

  23. Hi Pam,
    Sorry that I have not written sooner, but I am still going everyday to see my mom at the rehab with my dad. I am very busy and I get home late at night..SO I hope that you understand.
    This post is right up my alley...as I love cauliflower and as a matter of fact my whole family does. I love your recipe as it must be very tasty and full of flavor. I will have to try this way, we usually bake ours or fry them. Thanks for sharing my dear friend...
    Have a great week...
    Dottie :)

  24. I love cauliflower. Hubby tried it for the first time recently. He also tried broccoli for the first time. Me, I'm a veghead but him, not so much. Great that he tried both though and liked them. Hot dog.

    Happy Eating, Pam.
