Roasted cauliflower looks amazing, but tastes even better!

You’d be forgiven for thinking this roasted cauliflower is a fresh loaf of bread at first glance. The crisped exterior is a beautiful golden brown thanks to a coat of olive oil with a pinch of kosher salt. But the recipe really comes alive with the fresh lemon vinaigrette, adding savory flavor with a tangy kick that’ll keep you coming back for more. Unlike a loaf of bread, though, this completely Gluten-Free recipe won’t make you have to worry about packing on the carbs!
