Roasted Cauliflower

This healthy, paleo and vegan recipe originated from a conversation I recently had with my sister in law. She asked if I ever roasted cauliflower and I realized I never did! I’m not sure why because this recipe is the easiest cauliflower dish I’ve ever done in my life. You mix everything together and pop it in the oven. Let it do its magic while you get going with other things that need to be done. Can’t be more simple, right? @sarchakra
