I'm sure roasting it in pieces is much easier and faster. He just says that it tastes better and is juicier if you keep it whole. Never gotten around to trying it myself.
thanks! i followed the recepie but i guess something wasn't working there. cauliflower is still great vegie

butter (generously), a bit of seasoning salt, nutmeg. And garlic, lots of garlic!
Close up, put back on grill for half an hour or till tender on indirect heat. Turn occasionally.

Hint, you probably won't need as much butter and whatever liquid you use (milk, evap milk, chix broth) as you do with potatos. I actually like the mashed cauliflower as much if not more than mashed potatos cause they are so heavy lately. My taste buds seem to have a mind of their own the last couple weeks or so, don't want anything too heavy or slighest bit greasy.
i know! i agree! people have such different taste, i once made something i thought was sooo good and then someone else told me it doesn't tastes good

this is what i have been making for my kids, although my toddler eats cauliflower holding it in pieces but for baby i thought in the same direction like urself, thanks and she been having a blended/mashed caulflower and she likes it

i also put some lemon and olive oil

i am not sure where it went wrong but it made a mess and didn't come out.....

please help!
Cut the cauliflower into florets, and toss with about 1 Tbsp oil, salt and pepper, to taste. Make sure you don't crowd the pan or it will steam instead of roast - keep the florets in one layer. I prefer a fairly high heat, and roast at 425F about 25 -30 minutes.

the browned bits of cauliflower are the yummiest pieces, so i add seasoned panko to the drizzled olive oil treatment at the start, so's there will be plenty of those browned bits.
