Darlin’ Deals Dinner ~ Lemon Parmesan Baked Cauliflower!

Its been awhile since I’ve shared a meal idea with my Darlins, mainly because I have a newborn so being creative in the kitchen is not possible for me lately 😉

However, I recently was invited to Stone Fire’s Media Dinner to taste some new menu items (keep an eye out for my upcoming review) and one of my favorites was the Roasted Cauliflower so I was inspired to try cooking it myself!

*Re-pin this recipe on Pinterest to save for later.

So long story short, here’s how I made this tasty dish..

You’ll need:

  • Head of Cauliflower
  • Butter
  • Parmesan
  • Lemon
  • Shredded Cheese


Preheat oven to 475. Wash cauliflower and cut it into small sections. Lay cauliflower pieces in a glass baking dish in a single layer. Squeeze 1/2 lemon over cauliflower. Get 2-3 tablespoons of butter in a microwaveable dish and sprinkle shredded cheese over butter and sprinkle parmesan on top. Once its warmed up squeeze 1/2 lemon over mixture. Microwave butter mixture for 15 seconds. Pour mixture over cauliflower. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Cauliflower should be soft but not mushy that’s how you know its fully cooked.

** The next time I make this I will cut each of the cauliflower pieces in half so that it cooks a little better, but it was still very tasty this way.




  1. […] Shortly after enjoying a glass of wine the food began arriving on the buffet table. First out was the Keen Green salad and a Shrimp platter. The Keen Green  was anything but an ordinary green lettuce salad, it was filled with quinoa, chopped spinach, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, avocado, parmesan cheese and fresh pesto. Alright now I have a confession, I had never tried quinoa until that evening.. I know, I know its all the craze right now but somehow I managed to avoid trying it for fear that I wouldn’t like it. Boy was I missing out! Quinoa is delicious especially when paired with tasty veggies such as sundried tomatoes and artichoke hearts. Since I’m not a seafood eater I left the shrimp tasting to my husband and he happily obliged. Once the shrimp dish was empty a tray of Whole Roasted Cauliflower was brought out. Now let me preface this by saying that just as I am not a seafood eater my husband is not a vegetable lover so his first reaction to seeing a plate of a roasted vegetable was of complete disinterest. However in the spirit of being a good sport for my review purposes he tried it. To his surprise it was the tastiest item so far! He literally polished off the entire serving of cauliflower and began looking around for the server to ask for a second serving. We both enjoyed the Roasted Cauliflower dish so much that it inspired me to try to replicate it at home for dinner the following week, check out my first attempt at baking a cauliflower in my latest edition of Darlin’ Deals Dinner ideas posted here.
