  • Place the cauliflower in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Toss until well coated. Pour the seasoning mixture over the cauliflower and stir until well coated.
  • Place the cauliflower on the prepare baking sheet in an even layer. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes or until cauliflower is tender. Remove from the oven.
