This was a spontaneous throw together last minute side dish. I had two heads of cauliflower to use, so it was a logical choice.
Problem was, cauliflower preparations I have enjoyed took a bit longer to prepare and bake, and I needed something in the next 15 minutes.
Toss a vegetable with a few basic ingredients, roast it to bring out that luscious sweetness, and voila…a mouthwatering, easy side dish! The lemon really set this off for me…and if I could have Parmesan, I can bet a couple of tablespoons sprinkled on top would be out of this world.
Quick Oven Roasted Cauliflower w/ Lemon & Garlic
- 1 head cauliflower cut into bite size florets
- 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice (I bet the addition of lemon zest would be great to
- 4-8 large cloves garlic thinly sliced (depending on how garlicky you like it, the garlic will be roasted too, so not too pungent)
- Salt to taste
Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Toss the cauliflower florets with the remaining ingredients.
Place on a cookie sheet or roasting pan and place in the oven. Roast for about 10-15 minutes until the florets are fork tender and beginning to brown! This is good hot or cold!
