Roasted Cauliflower


This is a simple and delicious side dish. The mayonnaise sounds odd, but something about the flavor marries extremely well with the sometimes bland cauliflower, and it caramelizes beautifully. No one will have any idea there is mayonnaise in this recipe and cauliflower haters will have a hard time finding fault with this preparation.

Roasted Cauliflower:
(serves 2-4)

1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets
1/4 cup light mayonnaise (can use regular)
1 tbs olive oil
Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste

Directions:
Preheat over to 450 (if baking something else at a lower temp, can cook at a lower temp, adjust cooking time to much longer). Toss cut up cauliflower with mayonnaise, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Roast on a foil-lined baking sheet for about 30 minutes (up to an hour if cooking at lower temp - it can take a while), or until fork tender and golden brown - can toss or turn in oven while cooking to evenly brown if desired.

This is so good that not only is it the second time in a week that I've made it, but I made two heads of it this time so we can have left overs. A big bowl of this was dinner for each of us tonight!

I don't know how exactly I stumbled onto your cauliflower recipe, but thank goodness I did. The whole family enjoyed it and my husband declared that this is now his absolute favorite. Thank you for sharing.
