Easy Gluten Free Spicy Roasted Cauliflower

This is a perfect side dish for a quick and easy weeknight meal. Just toss it all together and pop it in the oven for a flavorful, low carb gluten free side that pairs well with everything from poultry to beef and pork roasts.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 25-27 minutes
Serves: 4


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 baking sheet 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.
