GARLIC PARMESAN ROASTED CAULIFLOWER

GARLIC PARMESAN ROASTED CAULIFLOWER

Do you remember ten years ago when cauliflower became super popular and was used in place of all other carbs? Then the demand and supply got out of control, and cauliflower suddenly cost more than $5 per head. ?

It’s great to see that there is more supply than demand and that I can now buy cauliflower at a reasonable price. It is an extremely versatile vegetable that can be used in many different ways. However, I like to roast it with some garlic and Parmesan. Garlic Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower is a delicious side dish that can be served with dinner or snacks. It’s delicious any way you choose to eat it.

ISN’T THE CAULIFLOWER CRISPY?

It is easy to misunderstand texture in photos. Cauliflower gets softer went roasted. Although you can see some caramelization around the edges, it doesn’t get crispy.

Roasting cauliflower is my favourite way of preparing it. This under-rated vegetable has so much to offer and roasting it tops the list. It brought out its delicious flavour and paired with garlic, Parmesan and breadcrumbs to create an irresistible dish. To make crunchy breaded cauliflower bites, you can use two methods. The final result is irresistible crunchy cauliflower bites!

Can I use fresh garlic?

Yes, absolutely! Yes, absolutely! This recipe will work well with two to four chopped cloves of garlic.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH GARLIC PARMESAN ROASTED CAULIFLOWER

This roasted cauliflower is a wonderful side dish that can be used in many different ways. This garlic-Parmesan flavour combination is universal. This combination is great with roasted meats like Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin or a portion of comfort food such as Salisbury Steak or Balsamic chicken and mushrooms. However, I only made one batch of this recipe to take photos today. I dipped it in Comeback sauce (or a good ranch dressing). 🙂
