1 head cauliflower
3 tablespoons fresh minced garlic
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons shredded Parmesan cheese
Remove the “stem” from the head of cauliflower and cut the head into bite-sized pieces.
Place the oil and minced garlic in a glass bowl and microwave for 20-30 seconds. The heat infuses the oil with the garlic. Add the grated Parmesan cheese to the oil and mix well.
Preheat the oven to 400°F degrees. Line a baking pan with foil (for easy clean up) and spread the cauliflower in a single layer. Pour the garlic infused oil and cheese mixture evenly over the cauliflower pieces. Toss the cauliflower in the oil, coating the pieces evenly. Bake for 10-15 minutes, remove the pan, turn the cauliflower pieces and bake for another 10 minutes.
Remove the pan and sprinkle the shredded Parmesan cheese over the cauliflower, tossing to coat the pieces. Bake another 5-10 minutes until the cauliflower reaches a nice toasty brown. The total bake time is 30-35 minutes. Sprinkle with your favorite fresh, chopped herb to add an extra twist of flavor.
