This is my hubby’s favorite way to eat cauliflower. He isn’t normally a fan of the white cruciferous vegetable, but when it’s oven-roasted with olive oil, garlic powder, sea salt, ground pepper, Parmesan cheese, slivered almonds, bacon, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, he voluntarily goes back for seconds, and thirds, and fourths.
This is a great Trim Healthy Mama S side to serve with steak or roasted chicken.
