February is American Heart Month, a reminder that a healthy heart is a happy heart.

1 head of cauliflower
3 Tbsp. (45mL) olive oil
2 Tbsp. (30mL) Mrs. Dash® Table Blend


1. Preheat oven to 450°F (220°C).

2. Cut out and discard cauliflower core and thick stems. Trim remaining cauliflower into florets the size of popcorn.

3. Toss thoroughly in a bowl with olive oil and Mrs. Dash® Table Blend.

4. Spread cauliflower on a sheet pan and roast for approximately 60 minutes, or until nicely browned (that's the carmelization process converting the dormant natural sugars into sweetness).

5. Turn three or four times during roasting. The browner the florets, the sweeter they will taste. Serve immediately.
