Roasted Cauliflower Bites

This weekend the sun was shining and the weather was warm – so of course I spent as much of it as I could out in the yard.  After working out in the yard I was hungry for a snack, but did not want to spoil dinner – so roasted cauliflower bites sounded delicious!  Each week I get several recipes from the numerous lists I am on and remember seeing this one and I had everything in the house to make it!  Wonderful!

    I don’t usually have fresh herbs on hand so this recipe works great for me! Wayne can’t eat a lot of dark greens right now so this will be a good one to try 🙂
