  • 1 large head cauliflower, cleaned and separated into florets (1 lb.)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan (40 grams)

  2. In a large bowl, use your hands to coat the cauliflower florets with the olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika.
  3. Transfer to a baking dish large enough to accommodate the florets in a single layer (such as a 9 X 13 rectangular baking dish).
  4. Bake the cauliflower for 15 minutes.
  5. Turn the florets to the other side, sprinkle with the cheese, and bake 15 more minutes, until golden-brown.
