Cauliflower gets as bad a rap as Brussels sprouts. But kids will adore this oven-roasted version, which caramelizes the sugars, leaving it incredibly sweet.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 500°.

Step 2

Place a large baking sheet in oven. Heat 5 minutes.

Step 3

While pan heats, place cauliflower in a large bowl. Drizzle cauliflower with oil; toss until coated. Sprinkle with pepper and salt; toss well. Spread cauliflower in a single layer on hot pan.

Step 4

Bake at 500° for 12 minutes or until browned and tender. Transfer cauliflower to a bowl. Add sage and lemon rind; toss well. Serve immediately.

I really like this dish. We are trying to be vegan a couple of days per week. Served as the main dish, with swiss chard on the side. The cauliflower was wonderfully sweet. I would use a squeeze of lemon juice in addition to the lemon rind. I am a sage lover but I don't feel that the sage "shined" in this dish.
