I am a huge fan of cauliflower. If you haven’t tried my Mashed Cauliflower recipe yet…you need to! This recipe for Roasted Cauliflower could not be easier and it makes the perfect side dish or even a great snack or meal! The original recipe came from Bon Appetit…with a few changes on my part. With just a few simple ingredients, the cauliflower is infused with a ton of flavor…you will eat them like chips…right off the pan!
Ok…so I do have to tell you about my little mishap with this recipe…I should have taken the thyme leaves off the stem…they were difficult to remove once the cauliflower finished roasting and they were even more difficult to chew.
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Slice the cauliflower…it will automatically fall of into sliced florets. Lay cauliflower in a baking pan and toss with the garlic cloves (if the garlic cloves are large, cut in half), olive oil, thyme leaves, salt and pepper.
Allow to roast for about 35 to 40 minutes, tossing a few times during the roasting process. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and allow to roast for another 8 to 10 minutes. You can even turn on the broiler for the last minute to brown more evenly.
That is all she wrote! ENJOY!!!
