Simple Roasted Cauliflower

It doesn't get any easier than this! Now, easy doesn't mean flavorless, on the contrary, as the cauliflower roasts, the flavors deepen and become almost sweet. I know a lot of folks out there probably say they don't like cauliflower but give this recipe a try, I think you'll change your mind. You can even puree, once roasted, for a carb free "mashed potato" like aside dish.

1 head of cauliflower
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper

Preheat over to 475 degrees

Breakdown the cauliflower into florets, but not too tiny, keep them substantial.
line a sheet pan with foil (for easy clean-up). Spread cauliflower over sheet, drizzle with olive oil, making sure each piece gets a drizzle. Don't skimp on the drizzle! Salt and pepper to taste. Shake pan or use clean hands to distribute olive oil and salt over the cauliflower.
Place in oven for 10 minutes, then lower temperature to 375 and cooks for an additional 20-30 minutes, depending on how caramelized you want your cauliflower.

Serve with ... anything!  ENJOY!
