  1. Preheat oven to 400°F / 200°C.
  2. Cut cauliflower into florets. Reserve the stem portion for another recipe.
  3. Arrange cauliflower florets in a large baking dish in a single layer. Spray lightly with cooking spray, and roast for 10 minutes or until just tender.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, mix together yogurt, shredded cheese, garlic powder, nutritional yeast, dijon mustard, salt and pepper until combined.
  5. Remove cauliflower from the oven. Drizzle sauce all over the cauliflower and toss until coated evenly. 
Top with panko crumbs and grated parmesan and bake for another 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!


  • Nutritional yeast adds an extra layer of umami and cheesy-ness without the need to add a lot of cheese. However, feel free to omit it if you don’t have it.
  • Try to use non-fat or low-fat dairy to avoid making this dish too calorie- and fat-dense.
  • Don’t throw the cauliflower stem away! Use it in another recipe such as stir-fry’s or soups. Or freeze it and add to smoothies!
