Recipe Notes

*Curry powder is my FAVORITE seasoning with Roasted Cauliflower (please try it at least once!). You can substitute the curry powder for Italian seasoning or any of your favorite spices.

PARMESAN ROASTED CAULIFLOWER:  Use 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning instead of the curry powder.  Roast Cauliflower until tender then sprinkle with ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan then cook 3-5 minutes or until the Parmesan melts.  You can use more or less Parmesan to taste.  You can also add lemon juice, lemon zest or nuts.

CHEESY ROASTED CAULIFLOWER:  You can add any type of cheese from cheddar to pepper jack to your Roasted Cauliflower once it is tender then continue to bake until the cheese is melted.
