Roasted Cauliflower

Here's a fabulous and fresh tasting side dish that's as simple to make as can be and it's REALLY flavorful! The key to it is the lemon juice. It really wakes up the whole dish! Try it the next time you're cooking a roast or serve it as a part of your next holiday meal. It's SO tasty!

a few glugs of olive oil
juice from 1/2 lemon
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400°F. In a mixing bowl whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Add florets and toss until well coated. Place in 9x13x2 casserole dish. Place casserole in the hot oven, uncovered, for 15-25 minutes, until the top is lightly brown. Test with a fork for desired doneness. Remove from oven and sprinkle generously with Parmesan cheese. Place it back in the oven for 5 minutes.

If you have other things baking at the same time, you can bake this at 350F instead of 400F. It'll just take a little longer to cook through.
