  • 1 head cauliflower, trimmed and cut ¼-inch-thick slices
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 8 fresh thyme sprigs
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Lay cauliflower slices onto a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle nutmeg over the cauliflower; season generously with salt and pepper. Lay thyme springs atop the cauliflower.
  3. Roast in preheated oven until tender, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the cauliflower slices and continue to roast for 5 to 7 minutes more.
Mealthy tip:

Why not try roasted cauliflower as a snack? The oven does most of the work, so you can just chow down on this excellent source of natural antioxidants, vitamins, and phytochemicals.

Roasted cauliflower is my ABSOLUTE go-to roasted veggie. I love roasting florets, I love grilling or roasting cauliflower "steaks" - I love it all. Nutmeg, thyme and parmesan combine in such a unique and flavorful way here. I like my cauliflower a bit crispy, so I blasted it under the broiler for 3 minutes just before serving.
