Balsamic & Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

Balsamic & Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

Roasting isn’t usually the first cooking method you think of for cauliflower but the results are quite delicious. The florets are cut into thick slices and tossed with extra-virgin olive oil and herbs. Wherever the flat surfaces come into contact with the hot roasting pan, a deep browning occurs that results in a sweet, nutty flavor.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups 1-inch-thick slices cauliflower florets, (about 1 large head; see Tip)
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Toss cauliflower, oil, marjoram, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Spread on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast until starting to soften and brown on the bottom, 15 to 20 minutes.
