Who knew cauliflower could be so addicting! This Perfect Roast Cauliflower has caramelized edges that are coated with a super savory rub.




Prep the cauliflower: Remove the stem and green leaves from the cauliflower. Slice the cauliflower into 1 inch steaks and then cut into smaller florets. Place on a baking sheet and preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Make the rub: In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients.

Bring it all together: Pour the rub over the cauliflower and using your hands, massage it into each piece of cauliflower until coated. Bake for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
