Roasted Cauliflower with Pecan Oil

There is something about roasting cauliflower in the oven that changes it into a whole new vegetable. I like it infinitely better than steamed[ or boiled cauliflower and use it as is as an accompaniment to roasted meats and fishes, and I also use it to toss with pasta and rice. The pecan oil adds a nice rich flavor and finish. The method is very simple.]
