Roasted Cauliflower

Have we talked about cauliflower yet? It’s not exactly a wellspring for conversation, but around our house, its taken up prime residence on our dinner plates and in our garden.

I mean look at this beauty; all purple hued and gorgeous. I think you could tie a ribbon around the stem and make it a bouquet.


I’m always looking for new ways to convince trick my children to eat vegetables. Luckily, everyone in our family loves this easy recipe.


Roasted Cauliflower

  • 1 head cauliflower, rinsed and chopped into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (I don’t really know how much… a glug? enough to lightly coat the cauliflower)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese (again, I’m not really sure…a heavy sprinkle??)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a cookie sheet, spread cauliflower out, douse in olive oil and liberally salt and pepper. Roast the cauliflower for about 20 minutes, turning the vegetables halfway through. Pull out of the oven when toasty brown and fragrant. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Cover cookie sheet in tin foil and let rest for 5 minutes so the cheese can melt.

This might not be the best ‘summer’ recipe because who wants to turn their oven on, especially that high, when its already 90 degrees out? But, because we have an abundance of cauliflower growing in the garden (and I might have just planted more), we are cranking on the oven regardless.

How do you get your kids to eat veggies? Any recipes to share?
