I haven’t been the biggest fan of cauliflower because of it’s harsh flavor.  Then I forced myself to start experimenting with it and I learned how delicious it can be and how versatile it is (i.e., rice or quinoa, etc)

One of my favorite ways to enjoy cauliflower is roasting it, then coating it with a special sauce because it is less bitter.  Here’s one of my favorites using natural, store-bought BBQ sauce.
