I’ve taught you guys how to roast cauliflower before (if you didn’t know), but this time we’re kicking it up a notch. I don’t know about you, but I like to have at least 2 or 3 vegetable sides on Thanksgiving to balance out all the heavy casseroles and potatoes. I’m definitely making sautéed parsnips this year, but this cauliflower might have to make an appearance as well. It would cook quickly in the oven while the turkey rests and would be great with some Brussels sprouts thrown in too. The Parmesan cheese makes this super flavorful without making it an overly indulgent side dish (I’m looking at you, sweet potato casserole).

If you are looking to add cauliflower to your Thanksgiving dinner but you need something that’s going to work out better while sharing the oven with other recipes, you might want to try this cauliflower, potato and cheddar bake. And then you can just make this recipe every day leading up to Thanksgiving. It’s a healthy, easy side dish that the whole family loves.

Enjoy!

  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Add cauliflower to a rimmed sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat (with hands or spatula) and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Roast for 20 minutes, remove and stir.
  3. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and return to oven for 10-15 minutes more or until cauliflower is cooked through and golden brown in spots.
  4. Best enjoyed immediately.

Verdict: I love cauliflower this way — my roasted cauliflower recipe without parmesan is good too….but this one has cheese.
Husband’s take: He adores cauliflower this way. It’s SO much better than steamed, you guys. If you haven’t tried it yet, you absolutely have to.
Changes I would make: None are necessary but a squeeze of lemon juice would be super tasty on this Parmesan roasted cauliflower.
Difficulty: Very easy.
