2 years ago I ate dinner in Portland, OR in the middle of a blizzard and had my first taste of parmesan roasted cauliflower. I had never really liked cauliflower, so when the group decided to order this as an appetizer, I was not that enthused. Cauliflower has always seemed like a wanna-be-broccoli to me with no flavor; just another vegetable to add to your veggie tray that no one wants to eat. This dish however, is quite a tasty winter treat. So when I was asked to bring a side dish to Sunday dinner and all the usual side dishes were spoken for, I remembered this West coast treat and my inner flower child smiled.
