"Green Eggs and Ham was the story of my life. I wouldn't eat a thing when I was a kid, but Dr. Suess inspired me to try cauliflower."
-Jim Carrey, Comic
If you are a garlic lover, this is as good as it gets. For some folks the garlic may be too much, but I wanted this to have that rich, creamy (almost overpowering) garlic flavor. This is a great dish served with a filet of whitefish like grouper or cod prepared very simply. The two will complement each other well.
If you are not a garlic lover, just use less garlic. Start with only about 4 cloves of the roasted garlic and adjust to taste.
Servings: 4 | Serving size: 6 ounces cauliflower
Cooking Time: 90 Minutes
This recipe can easily be multiplied and makes good leftovers. Reheat until the cheese melts.

|3 tsp||olive oil|
|2 medium||bulbs roasted garlic|
|1/2 cup||2% milk|
|fresh ground black pepper (to taste)|
|3 ounces||part skim milk mozzarella (grated)|
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
While the oven is preheating break up the cauliflower and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add the olive oil 1 teaspoon at a time, tossing to coat the cauliflower. Place the coated cauliflower in a 10 inch oblong Pyrex dish and place the dish in the oven.

Let the cauliflower roast and toss it every 15 minutes. After 60 minutes add the garlic sauce and toss to coat well. Roast another 15 minutes and toss.
