Roasted cauliflower florets

While roasting cauliflower is certainly our favorite way of preparing it, roasting a whole head of cauliflower can be cumbersome on certain occasions, especially if you’re making a simple side dish. Roasting cauliflower florets, on the other side, offers delicious flavors and paired with garlic and Parmesan creates an irresistible side dish.

Baked cauliflower goes great with fresh garlic and Parmesan cheese and pretty much all spices you want to use, but for this recipe, we keep it simple using only salt and fresh cracked pepper. You only need a handful of ingredients to make these crunchy-tender roasted cauliflower bites, making them the perfect side dish for the holidays.
