Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower Recipe – A Word About Cheese!
If you’re like me and a cheese freak, you’ll love the salty Parmesan on these veggies! Honestly, I think all veggies (for the most part) taste better with cheese!
When you’re on the 17 Day Diet, cheese is allowed in moderation, so don’t let this stop you from making this Parmesan-Roasted Cauliflower recipe!
Plus, Parmesan packs in a ton of flavor without having to use a ton of it.
This 4C Grated Cheese brand is one of my favorites! One of the reasons why I love this brand is because they don’t add any cellulose in their cheese.

This Parmesan-Roasted Cauliflower recipe is low carb and low fat, so it’s perfect for the 17 Day Diet.
If you want to spice things up a bit, you might want to experiment with adding a few other seasonings such as chili powder, paprika, chili flakes or a warm curry seasoning!
Remember, flavor is everything when it comes to losing weight with the 17 Day Diet! If you want to liven up this dish and make it as fresh as possible, add a squeeze of lemon to it after it’s finished roasting.
It’ll be perfection, I promise!
