Roasted Cauliflower

This is the such a fun & delicious way to make cauliflower! You “paint” it with a quick dressing made of Greek yogurt, olive oil, garlic & lemon. The amount of time it takes to roast may be different depending on your oven…in mine, it’s always between 45 – 55 minutes. The head of cauliflower is done when you can fork it easily. I like to bring it to the dinner table as is, since it’s such an attention-getter, and then slice it from there. The florets fall apart easily. And I LOVE that there is ZERO chopping it apart in prep! By the way…if your cauliflower starts to get a little too browned before it’s done, just tent him loosely with some foil. That does the trick!
