Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower


What a wonderful recipe! Cut 1 head of cauliflower and toss it in olive oil and butter, so simple. love that!

Cauliflower turns sweet, crisp and caramelized, when roasted; and the Parmesan cheese gives it a great flavor!

I don’t know how many times I have made it, since my friend Mary gave me this recipe. There are never leftovers, my whole family loves it.

This roasted cauliflower is excellent for an appetizer (dip in some ranch dressing) or for a side dish.

Thank you so much Mary:)

  • 8 ounces cauliflower florets, sliced horizontally
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 light dashes of ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon chopped parsley leaves
