This recipe will transfer a head of cauliflower into amazing vegan main dish. Break the head of cauliflower into medium florets, toss with couple spoons if olive oil, place on cookie sheet and broil until slightly golden on the top. Do not bake or over broil because you need to keep the cauliflower florets firm and crunchy.  Remove from the oven and set aside.
