Roasted Cauliflower


30 min


  - head of cauliflower
  - 2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled and coarsely minced
  - Lemon juice from half a lemon
  - Oil
  - Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  - Parmesan cheese


  1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut cauliflower into florets and put in a single layer in an oven-proof baking dish. Toss in the garlic. Sprinkle lemon juice over cauliflower and drizzle each piece with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. If the oven hasn't reached 400°F yet, set aside until it has.
  2 Place casserole in the hot oven, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is lightly brown. Test with a fork for desired doneness. Fork tines should be able to easily pierce the cauliflower. Remove from oven and sprinkle generously with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
