Roasting cauliflower is simple and delicious, and this parmesan roasted cauliflower is always a favorite side dish.

The secret is in the seasoning for roasted cauliflower, especially garlic and parmesan cheese. Roasting at a high heat gets you the most delicious crispy parmesan cheese edges!

When you roast cauliflower, it gets those crispy edges instead of staying soft throughout.

It’s one of my family’s favorite cauliflower side dish recipes and even my kids will eat theirs and ask for seconds! There are never any leftovers.

How to make parmesan roasted cauliflower

Step 1: Chop your cauliflower into florets, then slice it into thin strips (see example in the pictures.)

The idea is to get pieces that will lay flat and get that delicious parmesan cheese crust on them.

Step 2: Place cauliflower florets on a baking sheet and sprinkle on the garlic powder, onion powder, and parmesan cheese.

Drizzle the cauliflower with olive oil and toss to coat.

Roast the cauliflower florets at 425 degrees for 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway through, until the outsides are golden brown and crispy.

This is seriously the best cauliflower recipe!

I could eat the whole pan myself.

There’s nothing like garlic and parmesan for roasted cauliflower.
