1 head of cauliflower (2 lbs.), green leaves discarded

olive oil spray

zest of 1 lemon (Approximately 2 Tbsp.)

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 Tbsp. capers, rinsed and drained

1/4 tsp. salt

Tender cauliflower with the sweet and tangy taste of lemon and the sharp saltiness of the capers. This is easy to prepare and serve. Simply cut into 8 pieces when you're ready to dish it out. 

1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit. Take aluminum foil and line a baking sheet or roasting pan.

2. Trim the stem of the cauliflower base, removing the leaves, but keep the core intact so it holds together. Level off the bottom so it sits flat. Set the cauliflower in the pan or on the baking sheet, then lightly coat the outside of the cauliflower with olive oil spray.

3. Bake the cauliflower for 15 minutes. Then rotate the cauliflower in the oven and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes more until it turns golden brown. If you want it extra tender, you can roast a few more minutes.

4. Combine the lemon zest and lemon juice. Move the cauliflower onto a serving plate, then brush the ingredients all over the cauliflower. Sprinkle the capers and salt over the top. Cut into 8 pieces and serve.
