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.

    Giving this a try tonight!

    The people complaining about using a plastic bag must not realize you can wash the plastic bag with very minimal effort and reuse for other recipes?l. I use a plastic bag in the same way when I make potato fries. Wash and reuse! So simple!

    Thanks for the recipe!

    The recipe is AWESOME!! The use of the BAG did not bother me! Thanks for the shortcut. To those who do not want to bag it, use something else… don’t push an agenda. : )))

    One suggestion besides using a bowl to mix them in is to use cereal bags. I use them ALL the time for this type of purpose. Most times we just toss them anyway. If using for breading things, they at least get two uses BEFORE throwing in the trash. Many times they are a little more sturdy than the ziplock style bags.

    Use a bowl with a lid, put all ingredients into it, shake it up really well, put ingredients on pan, put bowl and lid into dishwasher to be used many, many times. Works great for me
    in many recipes.

    1. I have not tested this recipe using mozzarella. You could top the cauliflower with a sprinkle of mozzarella after roasting if you prefer. Hope this helps!

    You’re not sure WHY you’d use a plastic bag? Anyone (anyone) can see the efficiency of mixing in the bag vs hauling out the utensils. You can’t say that the person did not wash the bag out and REUSE it – like MANY of use concerned with the environment do. Don;t jump to conclusions – ask the writer the question instead of passing judgement. CLEARLY the mixing methodology is faster with a lot less mess than the old bowl & spatula. BRAVO writer – very innovative. YES wash the bag and reuse it
