Roasted Cauliflower

Even though I probably didn't deserve it this year, my dear roommate Lina gave me this lovely little Le Creuset dish for Christmas.
The Maiden
And despite my secret obsession for all things Creuset, it's gone unused since that day.
But today, I had a lovely rainy day off, so I thought I would kick it off with a little vegetable dish. And this dish, my friends, is one of those dishes that can turn a person vegetarian.
The dish

Roasted Cauliflower
1 head cauliflower, cut into pieces
16-20 cloves garlic, peeled
2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary
salt and pepper
1/4 c olive oil, more or less
Mix all ingredients in baking dish and pop into a 450 degree oven. Cook for about 20-30 minutes, stirring every once in awhile, until done. Garlic is also lovely roasted, and can be used for bread, smeared on the florets, or eaten with the cauliflower. Either way, they are fantastic.

I mean, look at this guy...

bah! i forgot to acknowledge your Cruset gift!
how generous!
i just got a blue 7 1/4 quart dutch oven for christmas from my parents. what a motivator to make more soups and stews. when i'm middle aged i expect i'll be able to tell people "you know, i've had this pot since i was 25..."
