Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

How do you cook cauliflower? If you cook cauliflower by sautéing (ginisa) with other vegetables, or using it as an ingredient in dishes such as chopsuey, pancit bihon, or pancit canton, then you might be surprised to know that there are many other ways to cook this nutritious vegetable.

Roasted Cauliflower is an example. Cauliflower florets are mixed with garlic, olive oil, salt, and ground black pepper, then oven-roasted for several minutes until the texture is about right. It is later topped with parmesan cheese for additional flavor.

This is a simple recipe that you will surely love. I like this cauliflower recipe because the unique taste of the cauliflower is emphasized. Although this is a simple recipe, I think that this is good because cauliflower is highlighted. This is one of the few times where cauliflower becomes as star, and not just filler.

Believe me, this recipe is really good. You must give it a try.
