Lemon Garlic Roasted Cauliflower

I love things I can throw together, stick in the oven, and forget about for 20-30 minutes. This dish was simple to prepare yet tastes like I spent a long time on it. I like my cooked veggies to retain some crunch so I cook them until they have just a little bit of caramelization on the edges but not too much.

1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tbs fresh lemon juice (or juice of 1/2 a lemon)
3 Tbs grapeseed oil
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 350*F. Lightly oil a large baking dish. Toss cauliflower, garlic, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Stir until cauliflower is evenly coated. Transfer cauliflower into the baking dish. Bake cauliflower for 45-50 minutes, stirring several times.
