Lemony Garlic Cauliflower

There is something so wonderful about a simple vegetable side dish.  Something clean that you can enjoy with a variety of main dishes.  This cauliflower is so delicious.  You can really taste the vegetable since the lemon and garlic are merely enhancers.  It is an easy dish that comes together in minutes and requires very little tending during the short roasting process.  Sprinkle some parmesan and fresh chives on top and you are set.  The whole family loved this dish and it will become a regular at our house.  


1 head cauliflower, cut into 1 inch florets
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp thinly sliced garlic
juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbsp freshly grated parmesan
2 Tbsp chives, finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees
  2. Place cauliflower florets into an 8x8 baking dish.  Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice.  Evenly sprinkle the garlic, salt and pepper on top. 
  3. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  
  4. Remove from the oven and top with parmesan and chives.  Serve warm.
