When roasted with a little olive oil, cauliflower florets turn wonderfully sweet, crisp and caramel-brown. A squeeze of lemon brightens their flavor. In addition to lots of great fiber, healthy cauliflower is packed with vitamin C, vitamin K, folate and vitamin B6. This is a fantastic easy way to serve it, since the dish contains just a few simple ingredients and comes together in just 10 minutes of active time.

How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 400°. On a large rimmed baking sheet, drizzle the cauliflower florets with the olive oil. Season them with salt and pepper and toss well. Roast for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is tender and golden brown. Transfer to plates, garnish with the lemon wedges and serve hot or at room temperature.
High-acid Grüner Veltliner's pleasant peppery notes and grassy, herby flavors make it a fantastic wine to serve with vegetables. If you're having it with the lamb sausage sub shown above, you'll want to defer to the spiced, meaty flavors. Spicy sausages of any kind are great with a spicy, briary, old-vine Zinfandel.
