It hit me the other day that, if I like roasted cauliflower AND my parmesan roasted potatoes, why not try to make the same recipe, but with a little twist of cauliflower?

I mean, less carbs on a weekday is never a bad thing, right?

You guys – I made a whole head of cauliflower and between my and my 4 kids, we devoured every last bite.

Here’s the best part – There are virtually no dishes to clean up!

I place my cauliflower florets in a large zip close bag, add a little olive oil, toss to coat and then add the rest of the ingredients.

Shake it all up and pour it onto a lightly greased, foil lined pan.

  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  2. Combine the cauliflower and olive oil in a large zip close bag and shake to coat.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the bag and shake until coated, pressing slightly to help the breading stick.

    how could I make this same recipe with frozen cauliflower? How would the cooking time change? I'm dying to make it and have the frozen ones in the freezer.

    Great recipe! Thank you. Really people? Four kids, I'm sure you do too many dishes already, use the bag! I didn't know God was contracting out people from Earth to do some judging for him!? Shame on You! Stay awesome Shawn.

    Don't get why you have to waste a plastic bag for this. It can easily be mixed in a bowl. A bit consciousness about our environment would be appreciated. But I will try and his recipe.

    I used to make these just as the recipe calls for. My husband can no longer eat cheese or the breading. I just used a half packet of dry ranch dressing instead of any of the other seasonings. The ranch gives it a really great flavor!

    This is my new favorite veggie recipe! So delicious! Made a few batches for a family gathering and I hope I have enough! Didn’t want to serve the darker pieces so I thought I better eat them. LOL. By the way, I used a convection oven set at 400 - 10 minutes, stirred, then another 10 minutes. Turned out perfect!
    1. Nice! I have a convection oven too, but always use the standard settings when testing recipes for the blog, as most people don't have a convection oven. So glad you enjoyed them!

    Loved it, only thing I will do differently next time and so good there will be a next time I will use a little less bread crumbs, maybe 3/4c. Thank you for sharing.

    wow i just finished the comments from all the way back to July 15! sounds like a lot have changed how they do it...are there really that many carbs in bread crumbs and all the complaints about a plastic bag....or that you wash and reuse...really people you all need to get a life...Shawn thank you for sharing your recipe...i will try it as written. i did wonder about the shake parmasen cheese if that was what you meant...but by reading all the comments i found no you meant fresh...so to the store i go. thanks again

      I am going to try the almond flour for the breading instead of bread crumbs.., low carbs and gluten free for those that need that.

    I make roasted cauliflower a lot, usually use a big popcorn bowl, used a plastic bag last time, bag coats better and less mess. I use olive oil, salt, pepper, turmeric, garlic powder and onion powder. Never used bread crumbs or parmesan cheese. bake for 25 min. I think I will add the parmesan cheese and skip the bread crumbs, experiment with it for a Thanksgiving side. This is a great side dish and healthy. I use celtic sea salt or pink himalayan salt.

    Stupid question i know but can another tell me where they managed to buy Italian breadcrumbs or if I bought plain ones what herbs would I add to it please
    1. You can buy Italian Bread Crumbs at any grocery store. Much easier. Look up Progresso Bread Crumbs Italian Style. I added a link below but not sure if it will work. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Progresso-Italian-Style-Bread-Crumbs-40-oz-Canister/10320644?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227009373208&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=66579208832&wl4=aud-310687322322:pla-57785928466&wl5=9028796&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=10320644&wl13=&veh=sem

        do you have measurements of what you use please I have not ever used turmeric in cooking before Is it good? Thank you :-)

    This looks awesome. By chance do you know the nutrition facts on this recipe? Unfortunately I have to be careful with amount of salt, sugar etc..... Thank you,

    Great recipe -- love all the comments and alternative recipes. Parmesan has lots of sodium which many of us should not onsume. Regarding washing the bag and reusing -- if we don't judge other sfor their choices this world would be a much nicer place. It is not our business to tell the blogger what to do in her home -- would you like her to come to your home and monitor your kitchen or home habits?
  12. Jeannie
    I found this a bit bland. But I'm assuming it is because I didn't have Italian bread crumbs so I just used regular. Or it could be I had a small head of cauliflower so it seemed to be too many bread crumbs. Im going to try it again. Thoughts Shawn?

    Saw this today, Tried it with our Grilled 1/2 Chicken. great side dish. We ate the whole thing. Keeping the recipe

    I put the ingredients into my LoseIt recipes and it said it would be 1063 calories per serving (figuring 6 servings for the recipe as written).
