Roasted Cauliflower

One of my favorite go-to side dishes on a weeknight is roasted cauliflower. It's just a few ingredients, it doesn't take long, and it's delicious {really, even kids that don't like cauliflower like this recipe}. Try it and see what you think - I think it's the perfect combination of hearty veggie, garlic, salt... and just a touch of heat - a combination that equals a side of yummy goodness!

Put the cauliflower pieces in the dish (saving the clean-up of another mixing bowl) and drizzle with olive oil, approximately 4 tablespoons. Sprinkle with salt and red pepper flakes, add minced garlic and toss the cauliflower until it is well-coated with oil and seasoning (adding more oil if necessary to coat).tossed cauli sm Pop into the oven and roast for approximately 25-30 minutes or until the cauliflower is a nice golden brown. Doesn't that sound easy? It's a great veggie to prep, put in the oven, and continue cooking your main course while the cauliflower roasts to perfection. roasted cauli sm I hope you like this side as much as I do!
