Roasted Italian Cauliflower w/ Parmesan

I love flavorful vegetarian side dishes!  The kids and I are much more likely to gobble up our veggies when they have some kick to them.  This could easily be made vegan, without the cheese.

📌Pin it!


1 head Cauliflower, chopped

1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning (I used Spice Islands – Oregano, Marjoram, Savory, Thyme, Basil, Rosemary, Sage)

1 tsp Salt

1 dash Cayenne Pepper

1 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese


– Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

– Chop cauliflower into thick slices and lay floret side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  This allows the flavors to soak in better and saves the florets from burning.

-In a small dish, combine olive oil and seasonings.  Mix well.

-With a silicone brush, brush the tops of the cauliflower with olive oil mixture.


-Sprinkle salt evenly.

-Bake for 25 minutes until soft, with a bit of a crunch, and browned.

-Turn off oven and sprinkle cheese on the cauliflower.  Let sit for 3 minutes until melted.  Enjoy!
