This roasted cauliflower recipe couldn't be easier to make and requires just 8 ingredients. The cauliflower is simply seasoned with some salt and pepper and then cooks away in the oven until it's well browned and tender. We love how much sweetness you can get out of the cauliflower just by roasting it. Fresh parsley, lemon zest, and chopped garlic are tossed with the hot cauliflower for added brightness and citrusy flavor. It's a delicious side dish that will any complement chicken, fish, or pork entrée. For a fancier presentation, you can also cut your cauliflower into several thick “steaks” instead of florets before roasting.
