I have always liked cooked cauliflower but usually prefered it drenched with cheese or soy sauce. But once I tried this roasted cauliflower my mind was completely changed. It has a crunchy exterior and a soft, delicious interior that has a unique almost sweet flavor. And it’s healthy! This is pretty much the only way I make cauliflower now which is fine by Joel and Noah who love it prepared this way.
I have served this to people who do not favor cauliflower and it has totally changed their minds. It’s a great way to get picky kids to eat their veggies and it’s super easy to prepare.
The smaller the pieces of cauliflower the more browned, crispy surface there will be…a definite plus in my book.
1 head cauliflower, washed and cut into florets
3-5 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients on a baking sheet. Bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
