Cauliflower wasn’t on my grocery list, but when I saw this orange cauliflower, I had to have it! Using ingredients I had on hand, Garlic Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower was created.

Have you ever seen orange cauliflower? I hadn’t either. Purple cauliflower, yes, but not orange.

What is orange cauliflower? Orange cauliflower is the same as white cauliflower, but crossbred to hold beta carotene, the same pigment that makes carrots orange. Orange cauliflower also has 25% more vitamin A than its white cousin.

Cheddar Cauliflower is the nickname for orange cauliflower, however it doesn’t taste at all like cheese. In fact, it tastes and cooks exactly like white cauliflower.

Which is good because that means you can make my Garlic Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower with orange white or purple cauliflower and it will be spectacular.

In all honesty, I really wanted to make this head into cauliflower steaks, but from the first attempted slice, it was clear that my head of cauliflower was too crumbly and would just be florets. Regardless, garlic parmesan sauce tastes great on cauliflower anyway you decided to cook it.

Garlic Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower is a great side dish for most meats. I like to serve it with steak, chicken or fish. If you used this garlic parmesan sauce on cauliflower steaks as I originally, you could even make a vegetarian meal out of it.

I know that cauliflower is one of those vegetables many people claim not to like but with the addition of cheese and garlic, I’ve found that even diehard cauliflower-haters are open to at least trying it and oftentimes even ask for more!
