This is a simple recipe for preparing cauliflower florets that are seasoned with warm Moroccan spices and then oven roasted until tender and flavorful. It makes a great side dish to serve with any chicken, fish or hearty meat main dish. It's a one-pan dish, so clean-up is a breeze.

For the skillet, be sure to use a heavy-duty pan that's oven-proof.
