I love cauliflower in all its different forms. This way is by far my favorite. Roasting cauliflower brings out a whole new taste, not to mention adding seasonings and ingredients that compliment it so perfectly. It even had my husband, a classic cauliflower-hater, scraping the bottom of the serving dish. 

Here's how to make Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower!


Makes 4 servings

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1/2 large yellow onion
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese


  1. Begin with prep. Rinse and trim the cauliflower into 1-inch pieces, slice the onion into 1-inch sections and mince the garlic.
  2. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  3. Mix the olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  4. Add cauliflower and onion slices into the bowl and mix until everything is well coated.
  5. Line a baking sheet with foil and spread the cauliflower and onions evenly on top.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, turning pieces over every 10 minutes. 
  7. When down to the last 5 minutes of baking, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  8. Divide into 4 equal parts and serve.
