    This roasted garlic cauliflower is a super simple and fast side dish to accompany any meal. Even the pickiest of eaters will be begging for seconds and thirds!

    I love cauliflower. I love it raw as a snack or in a creamy cauliflower soup, as creamy mashed cauliflower, or roasted with crispy browned edges. This roasted garlic cauliflower is very easy to prepare. I toss it with garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, and some Parmesan, and lemon juice when it comes out of the oven. An irresistible side dish, even to people who don’t like cauliflower.

    The house smelled so good while the roasted garlic cauliflower was baking in the oven. I could easily eat a whole bowl of it for dinner. I like to serve it as a side with chicken, ham, pork chops, or steaks.

    How To Make Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

    What you need

    6 1/2 cups uncooked cauliflower florets (1 large cauliflower), cut small

    4 garlic cloves, chopped

    2 Tbsp olive oil

    salt and fresh pepper

    juice of 1/4 lemon

    2 Tbsp Parmigiano Reggiano, freshly grated

    Instructions

    Preheat oven to 450 F.

    Combine cauliflower, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper well so all the florets are coated and seasoned.

    Place in two large shallow parchment-lined roasting pans and bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, turning florets halfway so they are evenly cooked.

    Remove from oven and top with grated cheese and additional salt and pepper if needed. Serve warm.
