ROASTED PARMESAN GARLIC CAULIFLOWER
Are you looking for new ways to make vegetables for your family?
You have to try this Roasted Parmesan Garlic Cauliflower. There is something about roasting cauliflower, or really roasted vegetables in general, that keeps me coming back for more. Every time I roast vegetables I am reminded how much I love them. Now only do the vegetables always taste sweeter, I can get my kids to take seconds. You can’t beat that!
We make this Simple Roasted Broccoli and this Curry Roasted Cauliflower a lot, so I knew it was time to mix things up. Roasted Parmesan Garlic Cauliflower has quickly entered the rotation and is moving up the scale to the top. My kids have asked for this time and time again.
Another thing I love about roasting vegetables is how easy it is. You are using cauliflower that is chopped into florets and tossing it with olive oil and garlic. Once the cauliflower has roasted for about 20 minutes you sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top and finish roasting for 10 more minutes. It is that easy! Pull the cauliflower out, sprinkle the freshly chopped parsley on top and serve warm.
When I do meal prep on Sundays I like to roast vegetables to use throughout the week for lunches and dinners. I love adding this Roasted Parmesan Garlic Cauliflower to bowls like these Slow Cooker Cuban Pork Rice Bowls, Tropical Coconut Rice Bowls and is a really nice addition to this Zucchini Chickpea Quinoa Salad.
Aside from how tasty this cauliflower is, you will be happy to know there are some health benefits to eating it:
- Cauliflower is high in fiber and water content, which helps maintain a healthy digestive tract and lower the risk of colon cancer.
- One cup of raw cauliflower is high in the antioxidant vitamin C — both are required for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body, and necessary for the formation of the important protein collagen, used to make skin, scar tissue, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels.
- Cauliflower also offers a healthy dose of potassium, and folic acidand contains a sulfur compound called isothiocyanate that protects health and prevents disease.
