  • 1 small head cauliflower, cut into florets (1 1/2 lb.)
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp.)


  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar

Spread cauliflower in single layer on baking sheet, and roast 20 to 25 minutes, or until florets are browned on edges, turning occasionally.

2. To make Vinaigrette: Place raisins in heat-proof bowl or measuring cup, and cover with 1 cup boiling water. Let stand 15 minutes, or until softened and plump. Drain, and reserve 1/4 cup soaking liquid. Blend raisins, reserved soaking liquid, oil, and vinegar in blender until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
