Parmesan Ranch Cauliflower Recipe – Step by Step

Read below to get my notes and step by step on the recipe, or skip down to the bottom to just grab the recipe card.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb cauliflower florets- I buy mine precut usually but you can also just chop them off a head of cauliflower.
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp dry Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning, if you are gluten or dairy free, try my Homemade Whole30 Ranch Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Roughly chop the cauliflower into bite sized pieces.  The smaller the pieces the quicker it will cook.  My pieces were around 1 inch, some a little bigger and some a little smaller.  It doesn’t have to be perfect.  I used my WÜSTHOF Gourmet Hollow Edge Santoku knife which made the chopping super fast and easy.
  3. Place the cauliflower in a bowl then pour the olive oil and ranch seasoning over the top and toss to coat.
  4. Spread the cauliflower mixture in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Then sprinkle the parmesan over the top.  A couple of tips here…  I think it makes the easiest clean up if you line the pan with foil.  When you choose a pan, try to pick something that is just big enough to allow the cauliflower to lay in a single layer.  Try to make sure that the cheese is mostly on the cauliflower and not just falling through the cracks to the bottom of the pan so that all the goodness and flavor sits right on top of the cauliflower to make it most delicious.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes. If you want a little extra browning on the tips, broil for an extra 1 minute.
  6. Serve hot. Enjoy this quick and easy
  7. side dish!  If you have leftovers, try putting them on top of a salad the next day.  YUM!
