Cheesy Roasted Cauliflower

If you have trouble getting your kids (or yourself!) to eat cauliflower, try this method of roasting the cauliflower and topping it with cheese. It’s a great side dish for any meal.

1 head of cauliflower
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp Mrs Dash seasoning
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cut cauliflower into small florets and toss them with olive oil and seasoning. Spread them out onto a baking sheet and roast them at 400F for about 30 minutes, until they begin to brown slightly at the tips. Remove from oven and place in a serving dish. Sprinkle with cheese and cover the dish until the cheese has completely melted, then serve.

I saw this idea on Weelicious and reminded me that my mom used to serve us cauliflower topped with a homemade cheese sauce. It was the only way I really enjoyed cauliflower as a kid. Something about adding cheese just changed the vegetable completely. So I knew that cheese was good, but I never thought of roasting it before. I rarely buy cauliflower, but then one week I noticed it was on sale and I immediately remembered this Weelicious cheddar cauliflower and decided it was time to try it out. I’m glad I did! It was really delicious. I don’t think I’ll even go back to steaming cauliflower because I just loved the way it tasted when I roasted it. The whole family liked it, and even Cole ate all of his. I should have made more!
