Oven-Roasted Cauliflower – GNCO

I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed cauliflower this much!¬†

This was the 2nd place winner for our August Game Night Cook Off (GNCO). I have never enjoyed cauliflower so much. And yes it lacks a picture РI will promptly cook this myself so I can post the yumminess! 

Oven-Roasted Cauliflower

From Emeril Lagasse on the Food Network

5 to 6 cups cauliflower florets, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter (from 1 medium cauliflower)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon sliced garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
Chopped chives, for garnish (optional)

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.

Place the cauliflower florets in a large saute pan,  roasting pan or cast iron skillet. Drizzle the olive oil over the cauliflower, and season with the garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Place the pan in the oven and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure even roasting. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the Parmesan. Garnish with chopped chives and serve immediately while still warm.
