Servings: 4 servings
- 6 heaping cups cauliflower florets (from 1-1/2 pound cauliflowecut into 1-inch florets
- 3 garlic cloves
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp cumin
- kosher salt to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tsp lime zest

Preheat the oven to 450°F.
Smash the garlic cloves with the side of a chef's knife knife.
Place the cauliflower florets and smashed garlic on a large rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
Season with cumin, salt, and crushed red pepper flakes. Sprinkle evenly over cauliflower, tossing well to coat evenly.
Bake in the center rack of the oven until they are browned and tender, about 25-30 minutes, turning the florets halfway through so they are evenly cooked.
Remove from the oven, squeeze with lime juice and top with lime zest and cilantro; serve hot out of the oven for best taste and texture.
