Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower and Broccoli

This is a one skillet recipe. It contains deliciously yummy smoked bacon, parmesan cheese, broccoli and cauliflower.

Hold on though, the smoked bacon with parmesan, including lemon juice, garlic and Italian herbs add great flavor that make this dish palatable to eat those cruciferous vegetables.

Cruciferous vegetables are rich in nutrients, including carotenoids, like beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin.

They also contain vitamins C, E, K, folate and minerals.

Broccoli and cauliflower are also a great source of dietary fiber.

Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower and Broccoli

3 slices bacon, diced

¼ cup garlic, diced

1 crown broccoli

1 crown cauliflower

2 tbsp lemon juice, fresh squeezed

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp celtic sea salt

1 tbsp italian herb blend

1 tsp pepper, fresh cracked

¼ cup grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 

In large, heavy pan, lightly brown diced strips of bacon. 

Remove bacon from pan when lightly browned, set aside. 

Remove much of the bacon grease from the pan (a little is perfect – but you don’t want too much- just enough to glisten across the bottom of the pan, but not enough to pool up.) 

Add broccoli, cauliflower, and garlic to pan. 

Drizzle with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper, and herbs – toss well to coat evenly. 

Place in oven and roast for 30 minutes – until vegetables have started to brown and have reduced in size by about a third. 

Add bacon to pan, and sprinkle vegetables with parmesan. 

Roast for another 5-10 minutes, until parmesan is golden and vegetables have browned bits and are tender to the touch – but aren’t too soft.

Note: For softer vegetables, add 10 minutes roasting time before adding bacon and parmesan.
