Rec.TNT Roasted Cauliflower

My sister and her two daughters came to see my daughter and our new little Olivia and her brother Ethan today...So Gina and I made lunch for them..We did several veggie dishes and this one was so good..Course ya gotta be a cauliflower lover

1-head cauliflower, about a pound,cored and cut into florets
2-generous Tab. capers
1/2 c. golden raisins (sultanas)
1/4-c. evoo
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper I did a coarse grind
2-Tab. fresh chopped flat leaf parsley

Preheat oven to 400. Combine cauliflower,capers, raisins in bowl drizzle with the evoo, salt and pepper, then toss well to coat. Place on a very lightly greased rimmed baking sheet.Spread them out well. Roast for 20-25 min tossing occasionally or til they are golden brown. Place in a serving bowl and add 1 Tab of the parsley, toss.Sprinkle the remaining parsley over top..We served at room temp, but it's also good warm.

enjoy,

kadesma
I checked after about 10-15 min. stirred and lowered the heat to 325, my oven runs HOT..I was afraid the raisins and capers would burn..I checked every say 7 min after that til I liked the color of the cauliflower..

Oh Krikey Marm, I forgot to add, I checked after about 15 min. then stirred and lowered the heat a little to about 325 and then kept a close eye so they wouldnt burn or get hard.

BTW, is 'krikey' a new California word, or have you been watching too much 'Crocodile Hunter'?

Just roll cauliflower in a bit of olive oil and roast @400*. It is like eating candy.
