Whole Roasted Cauliflower

Simple and delicious way to cook cauliflower that can be served as an appetizer, main or side dish. The cauliflower comes out beautifully browned on the outside and tender on the inside.

I kept it simple with oil, garlic, salt and pepper and topped with parmesan cheese and parsley. Use your favorite seasonings.

Prep ahead tip: Trim leaves and stems as directed below. Boil cauliflower for about 5 minutes and drain well. Pat dry with paper towels and refrigerate. Before serving, prep as directed and bake for 30-35 minutes.
