Mustard-Parmesan Whole Roasted Cauliflower

This is an excellent side dish. It was a family crowd pleaser and it was super easy to make. I like super easy! The cauliflower was cooked perfectly. I found this recipe on the food network site. The only thing I changed was the oil, I like avocado oil better than olive. I also changed the number of cauliflower heads to 1 instead of 2. I also salted and peppered the entire head before putting the mustard mix on. Enjoy!

Ingredients
• 1 large heads cauliflower
• 1 clove garlic, halved
• 1/4 cup avocado oil
• 4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
• Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, roughly chopped
• 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
• Lemon wedges, for serving
Directions
• Position an oven rack in the bottom of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
• Remove the leaves from the cauliflower, then trim the stem flush with the bottom of the head so the cauliflower sits flat on the prepared baking sheet. Rub the outside of each head with the cut garlic.
• Whisk together the oil, 3 tablespoons mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper in a small bowl.
• Put the cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet and brush the entire outside and inside with the mustard-oil mixture. Roast the cauliflower until nicely charred and tender (a long skewer inserted in the center of the cauliflower should pass through easily), 50 minutes to 1 hour. Let rest for a few minutes.
• Meanwhile, combine the parsley and Parmesan in a small bowl. Brush the outside of the roasted cauliflower heads all over with the remaining 1 tablespoon mustard and generously sprinkle with the Parmesan mixture.
• Cut the cauliflower into thick wedges and serve on plates with a sprinkle of salt, lemon wedges and any extra Parmesan mixture
