This method of preparing cauliflower is very simple and extremely delicious. Because of the quick cooking in a very hot and dry oven, the cauliflower florets are not at all mushy. They had softened slightly but still retained a very pleasing crunch as roasting the cauliflower intensifies the flavor and gives it a very sweet nutty taste. If you have never roasted cauliflower, try it now!
Roasted cauliflower is so good that you could even serve it as an appetizer or as a snack.
