Roasted Green Cauliflower

In last week’s Bountiful Basket, we got a beautiful head of green cauliflower. I wasn’t sure what to do with it, but my favorite way to cook almost any vegetable is to roast it.  So I decided to break up the cauliflower into little florets and roast them at a high temperature.  They turned out delicious!  A little salty and still nice and crispy.  The whole family enjoyed this vegetable!

Roasted Green Cauliflower
-1 head green cauliflower
-1 T. olive oil
-1 t. kosher salt or finishing salt

1. Preheat oven to 475.
2. Wash green cauliflower, remove stem and break into small florets.
3. Toss florets in olive oil and salt.  Spread out on a baking sheet in a single layer.
4. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes turning once until edges start to brown.
5. Serve and enjoy!

    I love cauliflower although I read somewhere once that it is the most hated vegetable :). I will have to try roasting it, looks delicious.

    I think a lot of the "most hated" vegetables get a bad rap for being served overcooked. Roasting with olive oil and salt makes anything taste good! Even brussel sprouts :)
