Oven Roasted Cauliflower

Oven Roasted Cauliflower is a simple and delicious side dish where cauliflower is roasted in the oven until the edges are crisp, browned, and caramelized.


Are you a cauliflower lover?  I so am.  I love it raw dipped in Greek Yogurt Ranch.  So many people pass on the raw cauliflower on the veggie tray and I just think they're crazy.  That's alright, though.  More for me!  Ha!  The crunch is fab and it's one of my very favorite raw veggies.

As much as I love raw cauliflower, roasted is the absolute best way to eat it.  I'm a roasted vegetable lover all around.  Seriously, give me roasted veggies three times a day and I'm good to go.  Cauliflower develops such a delish nutty flavor when it's roasted!

And all of those crisp caramelized bits?  Gah.  So. Darn. Good.

This recipe isn't even much of a recipe, actually.  I mean, it's just cauliflower, olive oil, salt and pepper.  You can look at it as a cooking method, if you want.  It really doesn't matter how you look at it as long as you make it and eaaaat it.  This recipe is simple, classic, flavorful, and easy to prepare.  It might just become your new favorite way to eat cauliflower!
