Easy Spicy Roasted Cauliflower is the kind of dish that packs a punch of flavor without all the fuss. With just a few simple ingredients and a quick toss in spicy seasonings, you can transform humble cauliflower into a mouthwatering, slightly crispy, and delightfully zesty treat. 


1 large head cauliflower, rinsed, dried, and separated into florets
3 T. extra virgin olive oil

2 - 3 cloves garlic, peeled and finely minced

2 t. crushed red pepper flakes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
½ c. Parmesan cheese, freshly grated, divided


Preheat oven to 450˚F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 


Add cauliflower florets, olive oil, minced garlic, and crushed red pepper flakes to a large bowl and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.


Spread seasoned cauliflower on prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Roast for 20-25 minutes at 450˚F, stirring once to ensure cauliflower cooks evenly.

Remove from oven and set the broiler to high. Evenly sprinkle cauliflower with ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese and place under the broiler until golden brown (approximately 2 minutes).


Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
