  • nonstick cooking spray

  • ¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano

  • ½ teaspoon dried basil

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped into bite-size pieces

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  3. Place cauliflower onto the prepared cooling rack. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese mixture.

  5. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  6. Broil in the preheated oven until cauliflower is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the oven, garnish with parsley, and serve immediately.
