roasted cauliflower

 

Roasting cauliflower brings out a nutty flavor that’s absolutely delicious! We’ve turned many people into cauliflower eaters with this recipe (including my Mom who swore that she hated cauliflower…and now she loves it)!

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • olive oil
  • salt, pepper, herbs (chives, thyme, oregano, parsley are all good options)

Drizzle the cauliflower with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss together. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and roast for 25-30 min. (or until golden brown) turning every 10 min. Sprinkle with herbs and serve.
