Default Roast Cauliflower?

I saw a conversation the other day about how delicious roast cauliflower
was, well I've baught a cauli, but now what? Do I break it into florettes or
roast it whole? What about fat/liquid? Brush with butter or put some stock
in the bottom of the roasting tin? Help please!

cut it up in florettes or slice it so it cooks faster. about 350 degrees or it
turns dark. I toss it in olive oil and salt and pepper and fresh rosemary is
good or other seasonings. onions are good cooked with it.
I have never needed liquid.

I'll tell you how I like it the best, but it's not exactly healthy.
Boil it till it's still a little crunchy, dry it off in a towel real
well, and toss it with some flour, salt and pepper. Fry it in butter
until it browns a little bit. Listen to your arteries snap shut with
each bite.

Bite size chunks, BTW - forgot that part.

x-no-archive: yes

I think slicing it (1/4") works considerably better than florets. You
can toss with olive oil or use an oil spray and get away with very
little oil indeed, if that matters to you. Finishing with Maldon salt
and ground pepper is nice.

You can marinate it in yoghurt and curry powder and then roast it, or grill it.

I roast it at 400 degrees. The brown crispy bits are just wonderful.

There has been a long running thread on roast cauliflower on eGullet.

I cut it into florets and toss it with canola oil and a pakaged taco
seasoning pouch.(the oil makes the spices stick better).

I spread it out on a cookie sheet and bake it at 400F (preheated oven)
for about 30-45 minutes or untill I like the colour it turned.

Some people prefer slices (not me).

I toss the florets (sliced if needed for that extra brown crispy surface
.... yum) in a little olive oil, juice one lemon over them and toss again,
then salt and pepper. 400 F oven for ... 15-25 minutes.

I've been eating it regularly since I learned about it and I don't even
much like cauliflower.

I usually eat the whole head. By myself. In one sitting.

I think the lemon counteracts the cabbagey taste that boiled cauliflower
gets. (I'm not a big cabbage fan.)

If it's "supper" I might grate some Parmesan over it, but it's optional as
far as I am concerned.
