Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Prevent The Parmesan Crust From Falling Off?

It’s inevitable that some will fall off, but lightly pressing the florets onto the Parmesan cheese on the tray will help form a crust under it.

Can I Use Frozen Cauliflower?

For this dish, it is recommended to use fresh cauliflower because after thawing, cauliflower florets may release more water, making the crust less crispy.

What Can I Use Instead Of Olive Oil?

If you want to use healthy fats, you can substitute olive oil with avocado or coconut oil. Butter is a good alternative as well, and provides tons of flavor.

My Cauliflower Didn’t Get Crispy. What Went Wrong?

If you overcrowd the pan will produce steam, so the cauliflower will steam instead of roast. Do not overcrowd the pan and make sure your oven is very hot before placing the pan inside.

Is This Recipe Suitable For A Low-Carb Diet?

This dish is low-carb and suitable for a low-carb or keto diet.

Can I Make This Recipe Dairy-Free?

Yes. Instead of using Parmesan cheese, add nutritional yeast for a similar crunch and flavor profile.
