Cauliflower is not my favorite so I have to season it heavily with herbs and spices (and fat!) to make it tasty for me—just like this Garlic and Lemon Roasted Cauliflower. Cauliflower is so very healthy, because it’s a cruciferous veggie. So, I’ve learned some recipes that I really like, for instance: Mashed Cauliflower and Cauliflower Gravy. So, I challenged myself to make cauliflower so that it looks like cauliflower and that I would like it. I decided to try roasting it! What a revelation! Something about the texture of roasted cauliflower is just awesome. Plus, this is a very simple dish, which is always a weeknight bonus!
