ROASTED CAULIFLOWER WITH GARLIC & PARMIGIANO CHEESE


Cauliflower is one of the super foods and is often an overlooked vegetable in our diets. It is rich in vitamins and minerals. It’s an excellent source of vitamin K which is critical in keeping your bones strong and arteries clear. Cauliflower is also an anti-inflammatory and important for brain health. One more thing—roasted cauliflower is delizioso!


1 large head cauliflower, trimmed and broken into florets
¼ cup avocado oil or extra-light olive oil 
½ cup Italian bread crumbs
2 cloves garlic, minced
Zest and juice of ½ lemon
½ cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, divided
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
1 T chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Place cauliflower florets into a large bowl.
Mix in the oil, bread crumbs, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, and half of the grated cheese.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pour into a casserole dish.
Place in oven and roast for 30 minutes.
Stir after 20 minutes.
