  • 1 head (about 2 pounds) cauliflower, cut into small florets

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1 teaspoon capers

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Trim, and cut cauliflower into small florets; spread in a roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil; season with coarse salt and ground pepper. Toss to combine. Roast, tossing once or twice, until cauliflower is golden brown and tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
