My Favorite Oven Roasted Cauliflower Recipe
Where are my cauliflower lovers? I bet you’ll love this roasted cauliflower recipe! This recipe is simple to make, it’s silly. Roasting cauliflower is absolutely fantastic, it’s all about the texture. Talking about texture, it’s perfectly browned, tender and crispy.
It’s so delicious that I’ve been made it three times in the last week and plan on fitting it in to my menu at least one more time before Friday. I know I’m not crazy because each of taste testers (picky family members) gave it the stamp of approval and request for an encore.
Prep takes under 5 minutes, then roasting takes about 20, so this is a perfect side dish to whip up in a jiffy. Most cauliflower recipes call for parmesan, it’s like were all scared to try a little something different. That’s why I decided to take the jump and add one of my favorite cheeses, cheddar.
The combination of lemon and cheddar take the roasted cauliflower from average to the best cauliflower of your life – guaranteed. A matter of fact, I think I’m going to go ahead and make myself a batch now!
