Roasted Cauliflower

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Manami

I'm used to eating cauliflower raw, steamed or pureed. I love cauliflower and will eat it any way it is prepared. But this method makes cauliflower so palatable to any but the most ardent anti-veggie. I hope this will change your mind!

We roast vegetables a lot, but this is the first time I have ever added the lemon and it makes a big difference. The cauliflower was amazing. It did take longer than the stated 15-25 minutes, but I may have left mine in to large of pieces. For a lot fat and healthy side dish this is a perfect choice. You really need very little oil for the dish, and it is a great healthy addition to just about any meal. I can't wait to try with broccoli and asparagus.
