Oven Roasted Cauliflower (with a little broccoli thrown in).

I bought a head of cauliflower & a stalk of broccoli at the farmer's market last weekend. I also have a really bad habit of letting things like this go bad, because either i'm too lazy to chop it up, or I want to try something new & wait too late! This time, i didn't let it go bad! Woohoo!

I'm so glad I didn't let it go bad, because this dish, which i pinned some time ago, was healthy & delicious! 

 Pin / Adapted from One Perfect Bite

1 medium head of cauliflower, trimmed & cut into florets
3 large cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup grated parmesan-romano cheese (or whatever kind you like!)
Stalk or two of broccoli, cut into florets (optional)

1.) Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2.)  Throw cauliflower in a bowl. Toss with EVOO, salt, pepper & garlic. 
{The broccoli is not required; it is only in this dish because i had it on hand & needed to use it before it went bad! Haha! But it was delish & I might add it on purpose next time!}

2.) Throw into a casserole dish. 

3.) Roast in oven for 25 minutes, stirring once. Top with cheese. Bake a little longer. SERVE!

It was SO GOOD, y'all. 

Side note: I made this at the same time as The Perfect Chicken, which requires 25 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Therefore, i put this in the oven with the chicken on 350 and then up'd the temp to 450 & baked a little longer when the chicken was done.
