Roasted Cauliflower and Garlic...

My friends love this dish.  Even if you hate cauliflower you will love this!  It's quick and easy, and you can serve it on its own or as a side dish.

Heat your oven to 400* then slice a cauliflower into 3/4" steaks.  Lay on a roasting pan or sheet pan, then drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.  Break open a whole head of garlic, and cut the little hard bit off on the root end.

Cook for 30-45 minutes, turning the cauliflower once.  What you will be trying to achieve is to caramelize one side before you turn it.  Isn't that  easy?!

If you're serving this own its own, try this simple little vinaigrette.  While the cauliflower is roasting,  mince and mash one garlic clove, add a pinch of salt, then whisk together with 1 to 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice to taste.  Then finely chop 1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives and combine with the other ingredients....  Yum!

Bon Appetit!
