place flowerets on baking pan spray with olive oil or toss with it , sprinkle with small amount of coarse sea salt and bake of 350 till brown. Turn once. I have had cauliflower haters turn to lovers when this vegetable is roasted. P.S. I use leftovers in my scrambled egg, although there are rarely leftovers.
I tried a recipe where you substituted cooked cauliflower for mashed potatoes and it was wonderful. Now I substitute cauliflower in all my potato recipes. So I thought, why not see what other things I could substitute cauliflower for that would be as good. I now use cauliflower as a substitute for pasta, with a low fat pasta sauce it is every bit as good as spaghetti or macaroni. This saves hundreds of calories and is really good.
To substitute for mashed potatoes, just boil up a head of cauliflower, drain and mash. For a pasta substitute cook flowerettes, drain and use your favorite low fat sauces. Top with a bit of Parmesan.4
