I will be the first to admit I am a terrible veggie eater! But there is something about roasting vegetables that takes the otherwise boring and bland flavors to a WHOLE new level; I actually look forward to eating them! Roasting these seasonable vegetables, like in this sheet pan loaded cauliflower recipe, not only cuts down on cook time and dishes, it's also a great way to get in a TON of different veggies, which all offer their own unique flavors, vitamins and minerals and of course lots of fiber.
