Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower

This roasted parmesan cauliflower recipe is simple and delicious. It makes for a great side dish but let’s be real, I end up eating the entire batch with my fingers right out of the oven and then I’m not even hungry for the actual meal. Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower

Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower


  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1/2 c grated parmesan cheese
  • 1-3 cloves garlic*
  • 5 sprigs thyme
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Prepare the ingredients: Cut florets off the head of cauliflower and cut large pieces in half. Mince the garlic. Remove the thyme leaves; discard the stems.
  3. Toss the cauliflower, garlic, thyme salt, pepper and oil together on a baking sheet (I just use my hands).
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, tossing about halfway through.
  5. Remove from oven, sprinkle on parmesan cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes.


*I'm of the the belief there's no such thing as too much garlic so I use 3 cloves in this. That being said, I wouldn't necessarily want to make out with someone after eating it if you catch my drift. 😉

Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower

Hope you all are having a great weekend! Joe’s family arrives in Boston tomorrow so I’m doing my best to clean the apartment. I despise cleaning though it’s looking like 5 minutes of folding clothes followed by an hour of wandering around the block catching Pokemon. Pretty solid productivity ratio if you ask me…

  1. Ohh yum!!

  2. This looks so good! Plus it looks like it’s relatively easy to make too.

  3. I live anything with cauliflower! If you haven’t tried black garlic you definitely should! It pairs great with cauliflower and is a bit milder in flavor. It’s a new staple of mine!

  4. Love roasted cauliflower. So simple, so delicious.
