Roasted Cauliflower is a very simple but delicious side dish. Cauliflower florets are tossed with some olive oil and spices and then roasted in the oven. The humble vegetable gets an appetising make over as it slightly caramelizes and is sure to please even those who are not fond of it. Roasted cauliflower can be served as a party snack or a side dish with some couscous or quinoa.

Serve Roasted Cauliflower as a starter or as a side dish along with Panchmel Dal and Phulkas for a weekday lunch or dinner.
