Roasted Cauliflower with Yogurt Marinade

I really like roasted vegetables a lot, they taste great and it is really easy to do.  I saw this recipe for roasted cauliflower with a yogurt marinade, and immediately wanted to try it.  I just used garlic salt and pepper in the marinade, but next time I think I will try some Italian spices or maybe some crushed red chilies.  The cauliflower was cooked perfectly, and the yogurt/lemon flavor was wonderful!

Roasted Cauliflower

1 head cauliflower
1 (8 oz) carton non-fat plain greek yogurt
juice and zest from 1 lemon
garlic salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees, break cauliflower head into flowerets that are roughly the same size – for even cooking.  In a large bowl mix together yogurt, lemon juice and zest, salt, and pepper.  Add cauliflower and stir until it is evenly covered.  Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, lightly coat with a non-stick cooking spray, and arrange cauliflower on it, scooping up remaining marinade and dribbling it over the cauliflower.  Roast for 30 minutes, eat while hot.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
