Those crispy parmesan edges are the best part!
How to make parmesan roasted cauliflower
First, 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.
Place cauliflower strips on a baking sheet and sprinkle on pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and parmesan cheese.
Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat.
Roast at 425 degrees for 30 – 45 minutes, until outsides are golden brown and crispy.
The parmesan makes the cauliflower crispy and salty, so I suggest waiting until they are done cooking to add any additional salt.
I added around ½ teaspoon to ours, but you may like less.
This parmesan roasted cauliflower bakes at 425 degrees, which helps us get those yummy crispy parmesan edges.
