Roasted Cauliflower

5 from 1 vote
Roasting the cauliflower intensifies the flavor and caramelizes the edges which makes it sweeter and really really irresistible. Though it is cooked in the oven it still remains a little crunchy, which makes it a great side dish or a good healthy snack. It's just as simple... combine it with olive oil, lemon juice, turmeric and your favorite spices and roast it. You will be delighted, I am pretty sure of that.
