Recipe Author: Patty Hecke
1 head cauliflower (or 1 head equal amount of pre-cut commercially prepped cauliflower)
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Trim the head of cauliflower, discarding the core and thick stems; cut florets into pieces about the size of ping-pong balls.
In a large bowl, combine the olive oil and salt, whisk, then add the cauliflower pieces and toss thoroughly.
Line a baking sheet with parchment for easy cleanup (you can skip that, if you don't have any) then spread the cauliflower pieces on the sheet and roast for 1 hour, turning 3 or 4 times, until most of each piece has turned golden brown. (The browner the cauliflower pieces turn, the more caramelization occurs and the sweeter they'll taste).
You can added some Mrs. Dash and some garlic powder. MMMMM good! Sprinkled with a little sea salt at the end.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
