  • 1 medium head cauliflower (about 2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze (see Tip)
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. Remove leaves from cauliflower. Slice the bottom of the core off so that it will sit evenly on the baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tablespoon oil all over the cauliflower. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast, core-side up, for 45 minutes.
  3. Stir the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and balsamic glaze together in a small bowl. Remove the cauliflower from the oven. Using a fork, gently separate the florets and drizzle the oil-and-vinegar mixture over and into the cauliflower. Roast, core-side down, for 15 more minutes.
  4. Remove the cauliflower from the oven. Combine Parmesan and thyme; pat all over the surface and into the crevices of the cauliflower. Return to the oven and roast, core-side down, until tender and browned, about 15 minutes more. Before serving, drizzle the cauliflower with any excess vinaigrette that has accumulated on the baking sheet.
  • Tip: Balsamic glaze is balsamic vinegar that's cooked until it's very thick. Look for it with other vinegars in well-stocked supermarkets.
