Lemon Garlic Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

September 18, 2020

Lemon Garlic Roasted Cauliflower is an easy side dish that is healthy, bursting with flavor, and works with all of your favorite dinners.

When it comes to cauliflower, I am happy to eat it pretty much any way it is served. But my all-time favorite version is roasted every time. There is nothing better than the charred edges and we love it in our house so much, we fight to grab the almost burnt tiny florets from the pan. Usually, half the tray is gone before it even makes it to the table.

This version gets tons of flavor from fresh minced garlic, bright lemon juice, and then a good dose of Parmesan cheese. It's light, fresh, and tastes good with pretty much anything you serve it with. Believe me, once you start adding lemon juice and Parmesan cheese to your roasted cauliflower, you won't want to eat it any other way.
