A super flavorful way to serve cauliflower without a lot of work.
  • 1 medium cauliflower head (about 1.5 lbs)
  • 1 cup Ritz cracker crumbs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp dark chili powder
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted (1/2 cup)
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic (2 large cloves)
  • 2 tbsp hot 505 green chile
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Remove leaves and stem from cauliflower and break into roughly the same size florets.
  3. Blend the Ritz crumbs, Parmesan, pepper, and chili powder in a small bowl.
  4. In another small bowl, stir the minced garlic and green chiles into the melted butter.
  5. Dip each cauliflower floret into butter and then cracker crumbs to fully coat and place on large baking dish or sheet. (Note: I like to put the cauliflower in a plastic bag, pour butter mixture on, and massage to coat - then dip in the crumbs)
  6. Roast cauliflower for 35-40 minutes, until crisp on outside.
  7. Serve & enjoy!
