Good Food Good Friends - Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday and it is just around the corner!   Why is it my favorite?  First, it is an opportunity for me to reflect on all the good in my life and be thankful.  Thankful for my family, friends, good health, and another day to celebrate just being here!  Second , it is the one day of the year that I get to eat the most delicious foods and nibble all day long if I choose!  It is also my birthday.  I was born the day before and this year it falls that way again.  At my age, I am past needing recognition of my day, parties, cakes, presents, though they are very much appreciated if they do happen to come my way.  Just so happy to be starting another year!  Wishing you all a blessed Thanksgiving filled with peace, joy and love.

Our vegetable this week in our GRGF group is cauliflower.  I was excited because it is one of my favorites.  I made a very simple recipe and it was oh so mouth watering good.   Roasted in the oven in my Le Creuset cast iron dutch oven.  I am sure any oven proof pot with a lid would be fine.

Our next vegetable in this group will be cabbage and we will post about it on December 4th.   If you would like to join our group leave a message below.  Our current members are:


One head cauliflower, leaves removed
3T. Olive oil
2 T. Dijon mustard
4-5 garlic cloves
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup white wine
1 teas. Italian seasoning
Sea salt and black pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 400F. 
  • In a small bowl, whisk the Olive Oil with garlic and seasonings.
  • Brush the cauliflower all over with the garlic oil mixture, then place it into a dutch oven pot or baking dish. Pour in the broth and wine, then place the lid on or cover and transfer it to the oven.
  • Bake/roast in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, then take the lid off, baste with liquid, sprinkle parmesan on top, and bake for additional 10-12 minutes until cauliflower is fork tender.

THIS does look good. I am expecting a large cauliflower in my next Misfits box. This is how it will be used. So super simple

I love that this dish looks easy without a lot of prep time. Roasted vegetables are always so good; I must try this.

Such a fun thing that your birthday is around a holiday. Your cauliflower looks so beautiful. I would love to have that served to me...I will get a head of cauliflower on the next shopping trip and give it a go. Thanks!
