Roasted Cauliflower

"I saw this recipe cooked by the Surreal Gourmet on a Saturday morning television show. I was intrigued as I tend to find cauliflower a bit bland. This recipe results in a wonderfully sweet cauliflower that appeals to people who even "hate" cauliflower!"

    Do you roast the cauliflower head whole?

    I made this a few days ago with the olive oil and garlic salt. It was soooo good. I decided today to make it using spray (no calorie) olive oil and a little cayene pepper. It was still sooo good! I only cooked mine around 35 minutes. Next I'm going to try this using broccoli, onions ect! Thanks for a wonderful idea!

    I love roasted veggies and when I saw this recipe I thought roasted cauliflower why not. This was so easy and tasty and recipe that I'll make again. I did add a light dusting of garlic power before baking. Thanks for posting. Made for Fall PAC 2008.

    Yum! This is so easy and tasty. I've been eating it every day since I've found this recipe! I've been trying to do this with a few other veggies too. So far, carrots aren't great, but the asparagus was pretty tasty also :D

    What a nice, simple recipe. Roasted at 450 degrees probably for 40 minutes, turning several times. Cauliflower was very crispy. Felt like we were having fries for dinner. :)

    Oh my goodness! This was wonderful. Even the SO (who thinks that veggies should be labeled a controlled substance and kept under lock and key) thought it was good. I added a tad bit of cayanne pepper, and lowered the baking temp to 375 for 45 minutes. We'll be making this again. Thanks!!!
