It’s so easy to overlook vegetables when cooking a meal. You have the main dish thought-out and prepped, and then decide you’d like a side of vegetables to round out a well-balanced meal! Well, I think it’s important to have a side of veggies be just as delicious as the rest of the meal. This garlic parmesan roasted cauliflower does just that! It also pairs well with a variety of main dishes.
The flavors in this recipe are fairly simple–some garlic, butter, parsley, parmesan, plus some salt and pepper. I like keeping vegetable flavoring pretty simple because it’s able to complement a larger variety of other dishes.
When making this recipe, I usually end up adding some extra parmesan and parsley at the end, but that’s totally up to you! I also always prefer to buy a block of parmesan cheese and grate it myself. Pre-shredded/grated cheese is coated in preservatives that can change the melting process. It’s a bigger issue when adding parmesan cheese to soups, but I still find that vegetables turn out better when roasted with fresh parmesan. That’s a personal preference, but you can use whatever you have on hand!
