I never know what to do with cauliflower! Usually I only eat it when it’s mixed with other vegetables, simply because it’s very plain and lacks flavor. Well, the solution to that is right here! Try this delicious roasted cauliflower recipe that uses garlic, basil, oregano, and black pepper.

Combine butter and seasoning in a small sauce pot and cook over medium heat until butter is melted.

Remove from heat.

Remove outer leaves from the cauliflower keeping the stem intact.

Place cauliflower in a 9×13 baking dish.

Pour butter and herb mixture over the top.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
