I love cauliflower. It’s a vegetable that eats like a starch. I was always raised to have on your plate, a meat, a vegetable and a starch (potato or rice) or the plate wasn’t complete. When I eat cauliflower I don’t even miss it!
Typically I steam it, but this roasted cauliflower is made right in the oven in less than 20 minutes, it’s got a great seasoning and it’s just plain, EASY.
- 2 pounds of cauliflower, cleaned and flowerettes cut into small pieces
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3-5 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 2-3 teaspoons fresh thyme
- 2 teaspoons sea salt
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and line a cookie sheet with non-stick foil.
Place cauliflower on cookie sheet lined with non-stick foil.
Toss cauliflower with oil and garlic.
Dust with red pepper flakes, thyme and salt, toss.
Bake for 17-20 minutes.
