Yummy roasted cauliflower with onions and garlic. Oh my goodness is this a fantastic veggie dish. Sweet, garlicy, amazing!
I usually roast cauliflower with just a touch of olive oil, salt, and pepper, but I stumbled upon a slightly more interesting Emeril version that I tweaked to my family's liking and it was a hit - proven true by the fact that I had several teenagers sampling bite after bite as soon as I took these out of the oven.
Warning - if you make this dish, your house will be filled with the aroma of caramelized onions and garlic!
Start with a head of fresh cauliflower - chop it into smallish florets.
Time to add onions and garlic. My cauliflower was huge, so I used 5 cloves of garlic and 2 small onions.
I always chop the dried ends of the garlic cloves off - ick.
Chop the onions into large cubes. If your garlic cloves are large, cut them in half. Add onions and garlic to the cauliflower florets.
Time to make the flavorful dressing. It's simple - all you need is extra virgin olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, Kosher salt, and ground pepper (recipe below).
Whisk, whisk, whisk.
Pour over vegetables and; toss to coat evenly.
Bake in a 400F oven for 1 hour, stirring every 10 minutes. The cauliflower will cook down quite a bit, but the flavor will be intense!
