Serve this so-flavorful side with roast chicken or fish.


  • 1 large head cauliflower (about 2 ½ pounds)

  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 tablespoon crumbled fresh goat or feta cheese

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl, toss cauliflower with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and roast until tender and browned in spots, 15 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes. Return to bowl; add parsley, cheese, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and lemon juice. Toss to combine and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
