Growing up, mom would pull use frozen vegetables as a side dish for many meals and back then I would absolutely refuse to eat them. As an adult, I now eat vegetables and have a bag for frozen vegetables on hand for a quick meal or side dish.
This recipe took me awhile to perfect, and the first time I was making it I managed to start a fire in my oven. Let’s just say my smoke detectors work, my dog is highly afraid of that sound and my neighbors got one heck of a laugh on a Wednesday night. What did I learn? Do not put frozen vegetables in an oven with oil, the oil and water will splatter than poof fire!
Herbs and Cheese Cauliflower
1 12oz frozen steamer package of cauliflower
1 tablespoon of olive oil
½ teaspoon chives
½ teaspoon basil
½ teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon parsley
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
1 teaspoon dry grated Parmesan
Preheat the oven to 350°F
Prepare the cauliflower the microwave according to the steamer package.
Drain out excess water.
Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and stir
Add seasonings: Basil, oregano, parsley, chives and ground pepper. Stir
Place onto a sheet pan and bake for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, carefully remove from the oven and stir the Cauliflower to obtain slight browning on the vegetables. Place back in the oven for another 5 minutes.
Once done add dry grated parmesan and stir.
For a dairy free option swap out the dry grated parmesan for 1 teaspoon of nutritional yeast.
