Simple Side: Roasted Cauliflower
Simple side dishes are the best. You want something to accompany you main dish, but not take over the show. Roasted Cauliflower is an excellent choice for a side dish that is simple, but still full of flavor.
Cauliflower takes on an almost candy-like flavor when it takes a trip through a toasty oven. Even if you are not a fan of raw cauliflower, you might be surprised at how tasty it can be when roasted.
First, chop up the cauliflower into uniformly sized pieces. Place onto a nonstick baking sheet, or a well-oiled or foil-lined baking sheet. Drizzle some olive oil over top (about a tablespoon or two per head of cauliflower is plenty). Sprinkle generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Toss it all together with a spoon or clean hands. Make sure the cauliflower is in a single layer.
Bake in a preheated 400 degrees F oven for about 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve right away!
One head of cauliflower serves about 4 people as a side.
