Gluten Free Oven Roasted Parmesan Breaded Cauliflower

You may have seen my Low-Carb Gluten Free Roasted Breaded Cauliflower Recipe. In this new recipe, I thought, “Be damned a little more carbs! Using cauliflower in a side dish is low in carbs already!” I boosted the protein a little and instead of using Kraft canister Parmesan, I used fresh Parmigiano Reggiano. Oh my! What a difference these two changes made! It’s addictive!

Oven-Roasted Parmesan-Breaded Cauliflower

The most flavorful, yet not high in carbs, roasted cauliflower you'll ever taste made in an oven! And it's all gluten free!


  • 1 head (2 pounds) cauliflower, florets cut into bite-size pieces
  • 3 tablespoons neutral-flavored oil (avocado or light olive oil)
  • 2 large egg whites (optional)
  • 1 cup seasoned gluten free bread crumbs (4C brand or homemade)
  • 1/3 cup finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, aged 24 months (or Kraft canister, if you must)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Oil a baking sheet with gluten free cooking spray. (I used Pam Organic Olive Oil Spray.) Set aside.
  2. Place the cauliflower in a large bowl. Drizzle with one-third of the oil at a time and toss after each addition.
  3. Add one egg white; toss; add second egg white; toss again.Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray liberally with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl,  whisk together the bread crumbs, cheese, and pepper. Pour one-third over the cauliflower in the bowl and toss; repeat one more time, pressing the bread crumb mixture as you toss. Take each floret and dip the tops in the remaining bread crumbs and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake on the center shelf for 15 minutes, turn each one over; bake an additional 12 minutes. Serve immediately. Cover and refrigerate leftovers and reheat in a preheated 350ºF oven.
