Roasted Cauliflower with Parmesan
Preheat oven to 400.
Place oil and garlic in a resealable gallon bag – this helps you coat all sides of the cauliflower and keep your hands from smelling like garlic.
Add cauliflower and shake to evenly coat the cauliflower.
Spread cauliflower onto sheet pan and bake.
Serve with dips like blue cheese, ranch, and buffalo sauce.

What goes well with Roasted Cauliflower?
Its true that you can eat cauliflower by itself or smothered in this 5 minute cheese, but it also makes a wonderful side dish along side chicken dishes like Copycat Alice Springs Chicken.
How do you know when Cauliflower is cooked?
As with most veggies, you will know its cooked when you can easily cut into your cauliflower with a butter knife and a fork. The best way to enjoy a sheet pan roasted cauliflower is crisp tender, where it retains some shape, but cauliflower can also be enjoyed steamed and soft.
How many Carbs are in a head of Cauliflower?
Cauliflower is extremely healthy and you could eat an entire head of cauliflower with only 29 carbs! This vegetable is a def must for a keto dieter. Of course, most people will not eat an entire head of cauliflower, so you can find about 5 net carbs in a cup.
Place oil and garlic in a resealable gallon bag.
