Roasted Cauliflower

Monday, December 7, 2009

I'm normally not a big cauliflower fan, but roasted up like this--  I can't get enough.  Even my veggie wary husband will eat this up without complaint, if that says anything.

Roasted Cauliflower
by Mom

The ingredients:
5 to 6 cups cauliflower florets, cut into bite-sized pieces (the smaller the better)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbs. sliced garlic
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 Tbs. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

In a large bowl, mix olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.  Add cauliflower and stir well. Pour cauliflower mixture evenly over large baking sheet and bake at 500° (that's not a misprint) for 10-15 minutes (or until light golden brown), stirring occasionally.  Serve warm with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.  Enjoy!

Thanks for posting Mom! I've been a little scared off about preparing cauliflower for my kids, but I'll have to give this a try sometime soon. I mean if Dad will actually eat it, it's gotta be good. :)

Yum... this looked so good that Aaron went out to get the ingredients! It will be a perfect side to our meal tonight! I'll let you know how it goes!

Roasted is my favorite way to make cauliflower, so tasty. My kids like it that way too. I usually just use olive oil, salt and better...this recipe looks even tastier. I'll have to try it next time...

Well, we had this tonight and everyone loved it (in case anyone doesn't know me, I have five kids under the age of 8, so that says a lot)! Yummy. Jakey even asked for a few helpings of 'flowers please'.

I love roasted cauliflower, but never thought of adding garlic or parmesan. Great recipe!

Oh boy, this sounds good. I love roasted veggies, but haven't roasted cauliflower. I can just imagine all the nice deep flavors topped off with parm. Big YUM
