  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Trim the florets off of the head of cauliflower and place them in a large bowl.
  3. Drizzle with the olive oil, then add the nutritional yeast, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.
  4. Bake at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes or until golden brown with some crisp edges. You'll need to stir it regularly so that it browns evenly. 

  5. Season with more salt and pepper if desired.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have nutritional yeast, you can leave it out. 

If you aren't dairy free, go ahead and add some Parmesan cheese. 

Leftovers could be stored in the refrigerator, but are best when eaten immediately. 

You cannot freeze leftover frozen cauliflower, the quality would not be very good.
