Oven Roasted Cauliflower

Wow its been over a month since I made an entry. I have just been so busy since we moved. My cooking has taken a back seat to other things in life. I am starting to do the books for my husbands business, so that has been taking up a lot of time I used to have. I also still havent got another digi camera, so that is a bummer and Ive not been taking many photos. My mom lent me hers though, so tonight I actually made something we'd never tried before and I could take a picture.

My mom came over last night and dropped off 2 big bags of food from her fridge since she left today to go out of town for a couple weeks. She gave me a whole head of cauliflower and I really dont ever eat it unless its in some frozen veggie mix. Well, that may change because this recipe was so easy, and turned out sooo good. Carl even said that he liked it. The kids were not fans, but that can be expected with cauliflower.

Oven Roasted Cauliflower

1 medium head of cauliflower
1/4 cup olive oil
course salt
fresh ground pepper
2 cloves of pureed garlic, or pressed

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Wash and cut the cauliflower into small florets. Put them into a large ziplock bag. Add the oil, salt, pepper and garlic. Toss around in the bag until all the cauliflower is covered nicely. Pour onto a foil lined baking sheet. Roast for 10-25 minutes, until the cauliflower is cooked and blackened in places.

Are you a Rachel Ray fan? I have a recipe for mac and cheese with cauliflower- it's made with gouda cheese and some spice for a kick. Grown up mac and cheese- so good.
