Need to add a tsp of cinnamon and cut the carrots in half. Also added five packets of trivia.

Not a fan of this , cauliflower texture was too rough for me. I'd rather boil and mash it to make a great mashed potatoe substitute.

Definitely enjoyed this, a nice way to serve cauliflower without drenching it in cheese sauce. It did take longer to cook than the recipe called for.

This recipe was good. The parm cheese addition at the end is important as it adds alot of flavor. Also, either my oven wasn't working properly, or it needed more time to cook. I expected it to be a little softer. I only used about 1/2 the salt, as it seemed like too much for my taste.

Roasted cauliflower is one of our favorites. We loved this more than the recipe with Balsamic vinegar. I left out the salt as the lemon juice gives plenty of flavor. Yum!

I loved this recipe and so did my kids! We've tried it with and without the Parmesan cheese and we prefer without. ????

This was delicious! My 3yr old son and I made this together an ate it for lunch actually. We gobbled up the whole thing. We tried it with and without the Parmesan and both liked it better without. My oven runs a little hot so I heated it to 450 then turned it down to 425 after I put the cauliflower in. I cooked it exactly like the recipe stated and I liked the little bit of crunch it still had.
