Roasted Cauliflower

Spiel

There’s not much to spiel about here except that when I was researching online to find out what temperature other cooks used to roast cauliflower, to my dismay I found that most put too much “stuff” in their recipes. Cauliflower already has a unique flavor and, when roasted, the slightly sweetish burnt-ish caramelization comes forth so beautifully that I can’t imagine adding garlic, cumin, chili pepper or whatever else in god’s name people tend to use to overpower, and hence ruin, this delicious vegetable. (I’m sure others disagree, in fact I know they do.) Let the cauliflower take center stage. It requires no more than olive oil, salt and pepper. The fresh lemon juice at the end will lighten the dish and send your taste buds into fervent applause.

    This is a classic side dish that is beautiful and delicious. My children (12 and 7) love this “vegetable candy” and even eat it cold for a snack. I have made it now so many times and it comes out perfectly every time. Thanks Elana! This is definitely a family favorite.
