"A cauliflower is a cabbage that went to college."
-Mark Twain, Author

The refrigerator light goes on...

I often overlook cauliflower in the market because I am fixed on something "green." Easy, quick and delicious, this is the perfect side dish for almost any meal (even though it's white and not green).

Tarragon (dried vs. fresh)

This is one herb where the dried is almost as good as the fresh. The ratio is about one teaspoon of dried for every tablespoon of fresh. A teaspoon is a lot of dried tarragon and too much of this anise flavored herb will result in a bitter tasting dish.

spray olive oil
8 ounces cauliflower (broken into flowerets)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/8 tsp dried tarragon
1/8 tsp dried marjoram
1/4 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)

Place a large skillet in the oven and preheat to 325F. When the pan is hot spray lightly with oil and add the cauliflower.

Return the pan to the oven and roast the cauliflower for about 20 - 25 minutes tossing occasionally.

While the cauliflower is roasting place the spread, tarragon, marjoram, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

When the cauliflower is tender remove from the oven and transfer to the large bowl. Toss to melt the spread and coat the cauliflower and then serve.
