Curry Roasted Cauliflower

Roasting vegetables results in the caramelization of the natural sugars in vegetables which intensifies the flavor and sweetness. Roasting is a fast and easy way to make lots of vegetables at one time. Place a variety of vegetables on several sheet pans and roast them all at the same time on different racks in your oven. You can mix and match spices or just go with olive oil, a dash of salt and freshly ground pepper. By making large batches of vegetables, you can enjoy them all week in salads, as snacks or as side dishes.
