Roasted Cauliflower with Lemon Garlic and Parmesan Cheese

 Roasted Cauliflower with Lemon Garlic and Parmesan Cheese


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets, about 4 cups
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a small bowl, stir together olive oil, salt, pepper, mince garlic, spices and lemon juice. Put cauliflower in large bowl and pour mixture over. Toss to coat well.
  • Spread the cauliflower out on a large baking sheet covered with parchment paper, making sure they are in one layer. Sprinkle most of the parmesan cheese over the cauliflower, reserving some for later.
  • Cook for 15-20 minutes, until the cauliflower is fork-tender and begin to brown on the edges. Sprinkle the remainder of cheese on top and serve immediately.
