(Sorry about the blurry picture – it was pouring rain/very humid while we unloaded groceries, and the camera lens on my phone was wet and cloudy even though I tried wiping it many times. I didn’t realize I hadn’t gotten a clear picture until I went to upload it today.)

    How do you roast cauliflower? Do you have a recipe? A favorite seasoning?

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      I wash/dry and cut it into larger bite-size pieces (it shrinks when it cooks). I spread on a jelly roll pan and drizzle with olive oil, salt and whatever else I feel like (fresh garlic or garlic powder and parmesan cheese are favorites). Then I roast it at 425 for around 40 min, stirring occasionally. You can roast longer or shorter depending on how “done” you like it. I like crispy edges. 🙂
