  • 1 large head cauliflower (about 2 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • 1 cup Gruyère cheese freshly grated
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 
  • Remove the outer green leaves from the cauliflower and cut the head into florets, discarding the stems. Arrange the florets in a singler layer on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Toss well. 
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, tossing once, until the cauliflower is tender and starts to brown.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and bake for 1  to 2 minutes more until the cheese melts. Season to taste and serve hot or warm.
