I do remember eating cauliflower when I was little. But it was always dredged in egg and flour and then sauteed in oil. Oh and then I dipped it in mayonnaise. I didn’t even know you could eat it raw with dip. It also has a funny name in Russian – цветная капуста- which directly translates to colorful cabbage – which isn’t exactly accurate – considering it’s just a bland creamy color. So when I grew up I was surprised to find out that there are oh so many other ways that cauliflower can be prepared. And this oven roasted way is my new favorite. Definitely healthy, full of flavor and simple to make. I do get tempted to dip this in mayonnaise, but so far I’ve resisted the urge. : )

    Ha! I looked at that photo and said, “There’s gots to be cumin.” Love it. Audrey and I are roasting converts (I’m not certain how long it’s been now.) Anyhow, next time a huge head of cauliflower comes our way, it’s getting this treatment! Oh, and the mayo 🙂

    I just stopped by to say that I made your cauliflower and it was really great – the perfect texture. And then we had a gratin with melted cheese and ground beef from the leftovers the following day. Also delish! Thank you for the recipe 🙂
