Cooking with cauliflower is new territory for me, I have always enjoyed it raw, in it’s perfect crunchy form. Now that I have started trying out new recipes to keep my diet low carb and more balanced, roasting a head of cauliflower is my new favorite preparation. Even my kids were willing to give this dish a try.
I prepared the cauliflower in my air fryer, but could easily do this in an oven on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. The sauce could also be prepared on the stove top, I was hungry and in a hurry, the microwave made quick work of melting all the delicious cheese for me.
