How do you make Parmesan roasted cauliflower?

Break or cut your head of cauliflower into small florets. Then combine the garlic, balsamic, lemon juice and salt in a small bowl. Pour the mixture over your florets and toss to combine.

Then spread your cauliflower into a single layer on a baking tray and roast for 10 minutes. Remove the tray from the oven and sprinkle the Vegan Parmesan Cheese on top. Return to the oven for 10 more minutes, until golden.

I’m not even embarrassed to admit that I ate the ENTIRE head of cauliflower for dinner. It’s that good. Poor hubby didn’t even get to taste it! But I’m positive I’ll be making this one over and over.
