Roasting cauliflower brings out its nuttiness flavor and caramelizes the edges. This is such an easy way to prepare it, I toss it with garlic, lemon juice and olive oil and top it with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and some lemon zest when it comes out of the oven.
6 1/2 cups uncooked cauliflower florets (about 1 large) cut small
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
kosher salt and fresh pepper
juice of 1/4 lemon
2 tbsp Parmigiano Reggiano, freshly grated
HOW TO MAKE:
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 a large shallow roasting pan and place in the center of the oven.
Roast for about 25-35 minutes, turning florets occasionally so they are evenly cooked.
Remove from oven and top with cheese and some lemon zest and additional salt and pepper if needed.
