Tasty Tuesday: Balsamic & Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

(Photo from Eating Well magazine)

I get bored with eating the same old vegetables, the same old way. How about you? I found this recipe on Pinterest (imagine that!) and it sounded so yummy I just had to try it. Even better, Alexa had dance the night I made it so I didn't have to hear any complaints from her. LOL! Let me tell you how good this was...Tom and I finished it ALL off. Yes, we did and I'm not ashamed to admit it (at least it's healthy, right?). It was that good (in my humble opinon). Just in case you need a tasty reason to try cauliflower or you just want to make it a new way, here's the recipe:


  • 8 cups 1-inch-thick slices cauliflower florets (about 1 large head)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (I only used about 1 T.)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil (the original recipe called for marjoram but I didn't have any)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Toss cauliflower, oil, marjoram, salt and pepper in a large bowl (I like to put it all in a large plastic container with a lid and just give it all a gentle shake). Spread on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast until starting to soften and brown on the bottom, 15 to 20 minutes. Toss the cauliflower with vinegar and sprinkle with cheese. Return to the oven and roast until the cheese is melted and any moisture has evaporated, 5 to 10 minutes more.
Pin It!
