Cauliflower is another vegetable that is delicious when roasted with just a little seasoning and olive oil. This is a quick, easy and healthy side dish recipe for a busy weeknight or entertaining. Since it is equally good at room temperature, it is perfect for something different and unexpected on a buffet or at a potluck event. The recipe can easily be made in any amount needed.
- 1 medium head cauliflower, broken into medium-sized florets
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
- About 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Preheat oven to 450° F. Place the cauliflower on a large, shallow-sided baking sheet in one layer. Season with the salt, pepper and marjoram. Drizzle all over with the oil. Toss well to combine, adding a little more oil if the cauliflower looks very dry. Roast until lightly browned and tender, about 30 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with a little Parmesan cheese and roast just until melted, about 2 minutes. Serve hot, warm or room temperature.
