    Hepcat, here's the recipe for Roasted Cauliflower. Not mine (from eGullet/Amanda Hesser), but tastes wunnerful. Once you have oven-roasted you never go back.

    - 1 large head of Cauliflower
    - 1/4 c good olive oil (extra-virgin not necessary)
    - kosher or sea salt (prefer not subsituting w/ regular, as kosher/sea salt are milder tasting)
    - freshly-ground black pepper

    Preheat oven to 400F. Wash the whole head of cauliflower, trim the leaves, prop the head up, then slice it vertically into 1/4 inch thick slices. There will be lots of small pieces and several large lacy slices. Place the cauliflower into a large bowl and drizzle on the olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Toss to coat.

    Spread the cauliflower evenly onto sheet pans and insert into the oven. After about 10 minutes, stir them around to get the pieces on the edge of the pan moved towards the middle to encourage even browning, stir again every 5-10 minutes. After about 20 minutes it is ready, but can be left a little longer until even more browned depending on your taste.

    Makes 2 servings. Leftovers are excellent hot or cold (esp. with Tahini sauce). Or you could use the florets in salads and other dishes. Improvise!

    ETA: Senrik, I love persimmons, period. Always had them when I was a wee one in China. Obviously you can't eat too much, though. Gruyere mashed potatoes - how luxurious (and non-affordable for a college student)! Bring 'em on!

    Nausicaa, thanks for the recipe . It sounds yummy. I love cauliflower. I usually saute it in a teensy bit of butter.

    Nausicaa, thanks for posting the recipe! So simple yet my mouth was watering just reading it.

    Sheela, I'll have to try your way too. Actually, I like to make asparagus like that, but instead of butter I use olive oil and salt it. You would not believe how good it tastes, and the little tips get all crispy like potato chips. But much healthier!

    Well, I'm about to go cook dinner. I could use a bottle of wine from the last page...a nice chilled white wine if you please to go with vegetable fritatta. **sip**
