Oven Roasted Cauliflower

I absolutely adore cauliflower. I find this veggie as a pretty bride, dressed up in white gown with a green lace around it, any groom would go crazy for this bridal beauty. I know I am thinking little out of the box here, it’s just a part of my wild thoughts, no offense to any other veggies out there. If I were a veggie groom I would have married this pretty bride without any second thought, lol.

When I go for veggie shopping this bride gets in to my shopping cart pretty easily and then finds a place in my refrigerator and sits elegantly. I put this in most of my veggie dishes like soups, stews and salads, even if the recipe doesn’t call for this. Sometimes I even make fritters out of this. And many times the famous Indo-Chinese dish, Gobi Manchurian. Same thing happened during my last shopping, it did tag along with me and this time it had been flirting with the other veggies in my refrigerator for quite a long time. Somehow I totally forgot about this and it was yesterday that I took it out and gave the pretty bride a royal roast after seasoning it. Nothing fancy about the roasting part, hence, I wanted to give this roasted bride a good presentation, so I made a cone out of the parchment paper and filled it with roasted cauli and placed it on a stand. This way it was easy to munch on while watching a movie or when lazily sitting on the couch.
