Cauliflower tossed with sesame oil, garlic, Kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, and sesame seeds; then roasted until golden brown.

Cauliflower tossed with sesame oil, garlic, Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper; then roasted until golden brown. Every time I purchase a new head of cauliflower, I try to find other ways to experiment with it. I have to say that roasting is my all-time favorite way to prepare and consume it as it really takes on a wonderful flavor. This time I added some sesame oil and seeds to give it a little different flare and it was extremely tasty.

    Carrie,
    This looks amazing. I wonder, if I can find the right pan, if I could grill this instead of turning on the oven.
    Thanks!

      You could probably grill this in a vegetable pan or wrap in foil and place on the grill.

      It’s one of my more recent obsessions as well Anita and I’m always looking for new ways to make it.
