I can't express how stoked I am about this recipe! I love finding unique ways to cook vegetables, and Herb Roasted Whole Cauliflower is a winner on so many levels. All you need to do is spread an herb mix onto the cauliflower, pop it in the oven, and — voilà! — you have a beautiful golden bundle of joy. The recipe yields eight servings, which makes it great for family dinners and potlucks. Slice the cauliflower into wedges and enjoy it as a side dish, or cut it into florets and enjoy it with your favorite dipping sauce.
