You'll be craving your vegetables with this easy and oh-so-delicious recipe. Cauliflower gets sweet and tender as it caramelizes from the high heat of roasting. A sprinkling of Cheddar and herbs and a squeeze of lemon on top make it crave-worthy.

This was exceptional, and very little effort. Everybody liked it and the herbs and the cheese just elevated it a little more than just plain old cauliflower

Addictive! Made as listed except I added a little chili powder and used garlic olive oil. Very tasty and easy to make.
