Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

I love roasting vegetables and I had not done Cauliflower for a long time.  I had a head in my fridge and decided to look up some recipes for roasting them.  I found one on All Recipes and decided to change it up a bit.  I turned out quite well, next time I will forgo the garlic, it burned and stayed on the pan.  The end result was nutty and delicious.

 3 tablespoons olive oil
 1 large head cauliflower, separated into florets
 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
 salt and black pepper to taste
 Juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/2 tsp onion powder
Scant bit of red pepper flakes

I actually put all the ingredients (except the lemon and Parmesan) into a Ziplock and let it sit overnight. Mix well.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees 

Grease a large casserole dish or sheet pan

Pour Cauliflower into the prepared casserole dish, and season with salt and pepper to taste

Bake for 25 minutes, stirring halfway through 

Top with Parmesan cheese, and broil for 3 to 5 minutes, until golden brown

Squeeze the lemon on top of the roasted Cauliflower and serve

This looks delicious Cheryl. I haven't tried roasting cauliflower yet, so I'll have to give this a try.

Finishing some of Cheryl's drafts... Keeping spatchcocking simple. Using a VERY sharp cleaver or kitchen shears -- not scissors, carefu...
