1 large head cauliflower (about 3 pounds), cut into florets
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon sugar (Rapadura, Succant, or Maple Sugar are best)
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
½ hot paprika
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground coriander
Coarse salt, for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 475 degrees
In a large bowl, toss cauliflower with butter, coating evenly. In a small bowl, combine sugar, salt, spices and mix cauliflower with hands, ensuring that spice mixture has been evenly distributed.
Spread florets on a baking sheet in a single layer and roast in oven until fork tender, at least 15 minutes. Serve in a bowl as a side dish or with toothpicks, as a party snack.
