  • 1 large head cauliflower (about 3 pounds), cut into florets
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Coarse salt, for sprinkling

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 500°. In a large bowl, toss the cauliflower with the butter. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, salt, pepper, sweet and hot paprika and the cinnamon. Toss the spices with the cauliflower until evenly coated. Spread the cauliflower on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast for 20 minutes, stirring once or twice, until the florets are crisp-tender and caramelized. Mound the florets on a serving platter or in a colorful glass bowl and sprinkle with coarse salt. Serve hot or warm, with toothpicks.
