Baked Cauliflower Florets

Roasted cauliflower florets make a great snack. I usually put whatever flavors I have on hand. Sprinkle a little cheese and bake just long enough to melt it.

Today I had very few florets of cauliflower in the refrigerator, not enough to make any of my usual favorites. I was baking crackers so I decided to bake the florets as well.

You will need (1 serving)
1/2 a cauliflower separated into florets
1 tsp. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
your choice of spices (I used cumin and coriander powder)
sharp cheddar cheese to taste

Preheat oven to 375 F. Sprinkle olive, salt and pepper on the cauliflower florets. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for about 10-15 minutes until cooked but not mushy. Sprinkle the remaining ingredients and bake for about 5 minutes until the cheese has melted.
