I can not believe school starts in a week for my kids. Where has the summer gone? I am always looking for easy and yummy ways to get my kids to eat their vegetables. My little one loves almost all the vegetables. My older one not so much. He is so picky. So everything tastes better with cheese right? Well here you have it!
I have a new favorite dish and so do they and this is it! I have a slight obsession with roasted vegetables. More so with cauliflower and broccoli. There is just something about the caramelization that takes place during the roasting process that makes them taste so amazing. Now think about adding some grated cheese. Well OMG! Forget about it being a side dish it just went to a full blown main dish.
I Promise you will never ever eat plain cauliflower ever ever again! Your kids just may like it to. So when in doubt just throw a little cheese on things. You never know.
1 medium head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
3 large cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar jack cheese
Heat oven to 450 degrees F
Combine cauliflower and garlic in a large bowl
Drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, lightly toss to coat
Transfer, in a single layer, to a large rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Roast at 450 degrees F for about 25 minutes, flipping each piece once
Sprinkle with cheese, return to oven and cook 3-5 more minutes until cheese is melted.
