Guess you have never tried it this way.

Cauliflower most certainly will I and many, many
others will attest to... It doesn't become overcooked and burned,
unless you let it go that far, but before that it certainly does
caramelize. And yes, it will fall apart if you put it into very tiny
florets. If it is sliced or in larger florets, it stays in those

I have done this countless times, after reading about it on eGullet,
and even before then. This has been for at least 6 years now..that I
have been cooking cauliflower this way.

You don't know what caramelizing means... cauliflower does not contain
sugar enough to caramelize... you have a better chance to caramelize a
head of romaine. I don't believe you ever roasted cauliflower, never
occured to you until this thread.
