To spice things up, I decided to do a chili and lime version of roasted cauliflower with browned butter!  I love the nuttiness of browned butter and the amazing depth of flavor it lends to whatever its combined with!  To prepare the chili lime version of roasted cauliflower, you melt the butter and add all the seasonings to the butter so the cauliflower gets an even coat of everything.  Toss it around…spread it on a lined sheet pan and bake!  Super easy! 

Roasting is a great way to cook many types of veggies and its great because its really hands off!  As a matter of fact I can’t think of a veggie that I don’t love roasted!  Brussels sprouts, asparagus, broccoli, turnips, radishes, squash, eggplant…all amazing roasted!  I do have to say that hands down our favorite around here is roasted cauliflower!
