Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time 45


1 head cauliflower
1-2 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat the oven to 475°.

Cut up the cauliflower into bite-sized florets and put in a baking pan. Drizzle in the olive oil and toss the florets to ensure even coating. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Roast for 35-40 minutes. You want the cauliflower to get good and dark. Some parts may even be black but those end up being the sweetest bits.

So, I came across this recipe a few years ago and posted it both on Grub Report (my food site) and in a The Apprentice: Martha Stewart recap I wrote for Television Without Pity (one of my jobs) and it has been met with rave reviews. I've gotten emails from people who have converted cauliflower haters with this recipe and also from people who lost 5-10 lbs just by eating this as a main meal.

My husband describes it as "McDonald's french fries without the guilt." It's also super easy.
