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


  • 6 cup cauliflower, florets, fresh (about 1 head), or frozen and thawed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano suggested


  • Preheat oven to 450ยบF.

  • 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.


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