Parmesan-Roasted Cauliflower

So....I'm trying my best to eat a little healthier these days, which is leading me into the pages of my Biggest Loser cookbook. :) (by the way, I'd love some healthy recipe ideas, if anyone has them!!) This is a great, easy side dish, and was actually really yummy, for all you veggie lovers!

This recipe makes one serving, so I just doubled everything, and it was perfect for the two of us.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) cauliflower florets
2 teaspoons grated reduced fat Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Salt, to taste
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

In a medium bowl, combine the cauliflower, cheese, parsley, garlic powder, and pepper. Season with salt. Toss to mix. Drizzle on the oil and toss again. Transfer the mixture to a small non-stick baking dish.

Bake for 15-17 minutes, tossing once, or until lightly browned and crisp-tender. Serve immediately.
