Very nice, another mentioned to boil or mash, but that is so different - as when you roast, the cauliflower browns it gets sweeter - In Lebanon they will make a dip of olive oil, lemon and garlic with a little salt and pepper, just delicious! Read More

I think the cauliflower may need longer roasting to get a nuttier flavor. Maybe some nutmeg? Read More

This recipe was good. The parm cheese addition at the end is important as it adds alot of flavor. Also either my oven wasn't working properly or it needed more time to cook. I expected it to be a little softer. I only used about 1/2 the salt as it seemed like too much for my taste. Read More

We really loved cauliflower prepared this way! We cut the head into small florets and I think it made a big difference because they browned up and got a little crispy on the bottoms. I can imagine that larger pieces would not roast similarly. We also did not turn the cauliflower. It was delicious and we will make this again! Read More

The day I made this dish was one of those days when everything seems to go badly, so I didn't have much hope for this recipe. I was running late with dinner and it took forever to cut up the cauliflower. I followed someone's suggestion to cut the flowers smaller and cooked it a little longer. I apologized as I placed it on the table. My daughter took some and said delicious so i tried it too and agreed with her. We both had seconds. I will definitely put this on my to make list. Thanks for a recipe that is both healthy and delicious. Read More

Definitely enjoyed this a nice way to serve cauliflower without drenching it in cheese sauce. It did take longer to cook than the recipe called for. Read More

This was very good the key is to cut the florets into small pieces so they get a little brown and cook all the way though. I also sprinkled on the cheese and returned it to the over to melt completely. It went great with grilled pork chops! Read More
