Today's Round Up: Side Dish

I found this recipe on a great website I have been frequenting lately (she even lists WW points for those that are counting). We eat broccoli quite often, yet I hardly ever think to get cauliflower. In fact, until I found this recipe, I do not think I had ever even prepared cauliflower in any way other than putting together a veggie platter. A few friends had told me about this recipe so I decided to give it a try. We have made it almost every week since the first batch and what do you know, it is Markus' new favorite side dish. He even requested it for his birthday meal! So, be brave. Buy cauliflower and make this recipe -- you won't be disappointed!

Oven Roasted Cauliflower

* 6 cups cauliflower florets (1 large cauliflower) cut small
* 3 garlic cloves, chopped
* 1/4 cup olive oil
* kosher salt and fresh pepper
* juice of 1/4 lemon
* 1/4 cup Parmigiano Reggiano, freshly grated


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Combine cauliflower, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper well so all the florets are coated and seasoned. Place in a large shallow roasting pan and place in the center of the oven.
Roast for about 25-35 munites, turning florets occasionally so they are evenly cooked. Remove from oven and top with Parmigiano Reggiano and additional salt and pepper if needed. Enjoy!
