The rich, nutty flavor of freshly grated Parmesan cheese pairs beautifully with cauliflower. Try the same recipe with broccoli, baby carrots and asparagus, too.

Ingredients

uncooked cauliflower

6 cup(s), florets, fresh (about 1 head), or frozen and thawed

olive oil

1 Tbsp

kosher salt

½ tsp

black pepper

½ tsp, freshly ground

grated Parmesan cheese

¼ cup(s), Parmigiano-Reggiano suggested

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cauliflower, oil, salt and pepper; toss to combine. Transfer cauliflower to a large baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Roast until cauliflower is golden brown, tossing occasionally, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven, place in serving bowl and sprinkle with cheese; toss to mix. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.

Notes

When you want variety, use shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese instead of Parmesan.
