Pepper-Roasted Cauliflower

(recipe, Michelle D ~ aka Sage)


Cauliflower is one of those vegetables that go from ho-hum to stellar once roasted. The addition of soy sauce and pepper makes for a tasty salty-peppery-sweet snack. From:


  1. 16 cups cauliflower, cut into small, even-size florets (from 2 large heads)
  2. ¼ cup soy sauce
  3. 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  4. 1 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
  5. 2 tsp. granulated sugar


  1. Heat the oven to 450°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat. Allow to marinate for 20 minutes, tossing cauliflower occasionally.
  2. Arrange ½ of the cauliflower in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast until tender and slightly blackened, about 20 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and repeat with remaining cauliflower. Serve hot or at room temperature.
