My goodness, but this was tasty! I needed something to serve for Thanksgiving instead of potatoes, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I used probably more Parmesan than I should have, and sprinkled with green onions, and it was fantastic. Thank you for another low-carb alternative to potatoes!

5 star - do again recipe. Lovely blend of flavours, oven time just between 15 - 20 minutes. The cauliflower still had a bit of crunch. The garlic and shallot together add so much flavor.

Delicious ! we loved it and i will be making it again, loved the bits of garlic and the strings of shallot, lovely flavours with the lemon and parmesan! Next time i will cut back on the olive oil, or maybe my califlower was smaller, it just seem a bit too much oil. Thanks for posting a very tasty veggie.
