Asian Roasted Cauliflower

Just another quick little vegetarian / vegan side dish. Quick simple and tasty, a perfect side dish for a bowl of rice or pho.

From Wikipeida:

Cauliflower heads can be roasted, grilled, boiled, fried, steamed, pickled, or eaten raw. When cooking, the outer leaves and thick stalks are typically removed, leaving only the florets (the edible “curd” or “head”). The leaves are also edible but are often discarded.

Cauliflower is a popular low-calorie, gluten-free alternative to rice and flour. Between 2012 and 2016, cauliflower production in the United States increased 63%, and cauliflower-based product sales increased 71% between 2017 and 2018. Cauliflower rice is made by pulsing cauliflower florets followed by cooking the result in oil. Cauliflower pizza crust is made from cauliflower flour and is popular in pizza restaurants.
