Roasted Cauliflower a.k.a. Popcorn Cauliflower

I try to buy local produce as often as I can. This week I was drawn to the big display of beautiful local cauliflower at my neighborhood farmers market. If you like popcorn this is a healthy alternative.  I would also consider using this recipe when cooking for friends as it's sure to impress and takes no effort at all.

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • salt 
  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. In a large bowl toss the cauliflower with olive oil and a sprinkling of salt.
  3. Pour cauliflower into a greased dish and roast for 1 hour, turning periodically until golden brown.
Tip:  The browner the cauliflower pieces turn, the more caramelization occurs and the sweeter they'll taste.
