2 tablespoon LouAna® Coconut Oil, melted Salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

4 to 5 sprigs of mint, minced

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. On a parchment or foil-lined baking sheet, toss the cauliflower florets with the coconut oil. Sprinkle the cauliflower with a few pinches of salt and crushed red pepper flakes. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until the florets are brown on the edges and fork-tender.
