Balsamic & Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

A yummy side dish or meal.



  1. Pre-heat oven to 450° F (220° C).
  2. Discard the base and leaves from the cauliflower, and cut the remaining cauliflower into small pieces (like you would to broccoli).
  3. Toss in a large bowl the cauliflower, oil, salt, thyme, and pepper. (Use pepper as preferred and if you like use a little lemon pepper as well.)
  4. Spread the cauliflower on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes so it softens and starts to turn golden brown.
  5. Take the cauliflower out and toss it with the balsamic vinegar and the parmesan cheese.
  6. Return to oven and roast for another 5 to 10 minutes so the cheese melts.
  7. Note: depending on the type of parmesan cheese, the calories can end up higher or lower.

This was good. Something different!!! I Will make it again! I had it with turkey meatballs. They went well together!

Yeah... Maggie and I made this a meal we ate it all ourselves. I may make this with salmon and salad one day...
I love roasted cauliflower and I love balsamic vinegar, but unfortunately I just didn't love the two together. The amount of pepper and parmesan both seemed excessive so I used much less. Next time I'll skip the balsamic vinegar and sprinkle a little parmesan on top of the cauliflower.

waaaaay too much pepper. Perhaps they meant tsp and not tbsp? i only put in 1 tbsp and it was too much.

Very good. I added mrs. Dash and no parmesan(to much sodium)

Very low-GI and tastes good, though I would add more vinegar.

Nice and flavourful - didn't need to use all the parmesan - probably used 1/2

Excellent! The pepper made it spicy but we loved it.

I'm working on keeping my fats down so I actually left off the balsamic and parmesan and it was still yummy.
