Roasted Cauliflower

Cauliflower.......such an underrated vegetable.  It has come to pass in our household that it is much tastier than previously thought......by my wife I mean.  Kelly won't eat it raw and I'm not a fan of plain steamed cauliflower.  So here's a great alternative.....roasting.  It mellows the flavor and makes it a little sweeter with a touch of caramelization.   Ooooh, so good!!!! 

Roasted Cauliflower

1 large head cauliflower trimmed and cut or broken into bite-sized florets
2 T. olive oil
1 t. Montreal Steak Seasoning (it's got salt, pepper, garlic and some other tasty seasonings)
1 1/2 T. lemon juice
1/4 c. shredded fresh Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl, toss cauliflower with the olive oil, steak seasoning and lemon juice.
Spread the mixture out on a lightly oiled sheet pan or baking dish.
Sprinkle with the Parmesan.
Roast for 15 minutes, then give it a stir.
Roast for another 15 minutes or until tender and slightly caramelized in places.
Serve hot.
