Cauliflower has been a go to produce for me and many of my friends as of late. Roasting cauliflower with a variety of spices and herbs makes it a whole new dish each time. For this recipe, the ingredients are simple and fresh. I loved how fresh produce met fresh parmesan cheese! The two flavors plus the lemon with garlic was perfection. This dish reheated well and it was great eating it a room temperature too.

What I’ve learned about roasted cauliflower? The flavors can be as creative as the individual willing to try out new flavors! I’d say don’t be afraid to try new spices—–I tried olive oil, coconut oil, salt, pepper, Tabasco sauce, and chilli powder on my last head of florets—simply divine too! I didn’t even measure—-sprinkle on and go with it! Every bite was wonderful.

  • Dried Oregano (to taste)
  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
