Spicy Roasted Cauliflower

If you're like me, you eat a lot of broccoli, but sometimes forget about it's pale sister, cauliflower.
This recipe was one I came across a couple of years ago and thought, "Oh, I'll try it..." and fell in love at first bite. First you start with a mixture of some great spices: salt, pepper, paprika, cinnamon and coriander (one of my favorites!) and a wee bit of sugar.

Mix it with washed and cut cauliflower...

And then when it comes out of the oven, it's ready to devour:

3 pounds cauliflower
2 T olive oil
1 t sugar
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/2 t paprika
1/4 t cinnamon
1/2 coriander

Preheat your oven to 425 (nice and HOT!). In a large bowl, toss cauliflower with oil. In small bowl, mix spices and sugar and (using your hands) mix it into the cauliflower. Spread on a sheet and roast for about 15 minutes, or until desired done-ness :) This makes an interesting side vegetable to veggie burgers or would love lovely served over a big bowl of rice. Enjoy!
