In my head, an ideal dinner is 4-6 different vegetarian sides that people can pick, choose, and build a plate from. This roasted garlic cauliflower is delicious and everyone will eat it, even those who don’t typically like cauliflower.
1 cauliflower head, chopped
3 T olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
sea salt and black pepper to taste
1/3 c freshly grated parmesan cheese, more to taste*
1 T fresh parsley, chopped
*For a vegan dish, leave out parmesan cheese or replace it with a vegan substitute. From my experience with vegan parmesan cheese, I prefer the real deal or none at all over the alternative.
- Preheat oven to 450° F and lightly oil a large casserole dish.
- In a bowl, toss the cauliflower, garlic, olive oil, sea salt, and pepper until evenly coated.
- Bake for 25 minutes, stirring halfway through cook time.
- Top cauliflower with parmesan and parsley, then broil dish for about three minutes until top is golden brown.
