Cauliflower was my favourite vegetable when I was a kid. As I grew up, there was a phase in my life when I stopped eating it. Few years back I again developed my love for it.

Since then I have been trying different cauliflower recipes. Thankfully my toddler son loves it too. It is quite amusing that he calls it Broccoli. Well, kids have their own imagination.

This roasted cauliflower recipe has become a favourite in my house. It is simple, quick and easy to make. You can eat it as an appetizer or as a side dish. I love to eat it with cucumber salad. It also tastes amazing with masala tea.

There are a few things that you must keep in mind while baking it. Always line your baking tray and make sure that cauliflower florets are thinly sliced.

Do try this recipe. Let me know if you have any questions.
