Preheat Oven: Set your oven to 400°F (200°C), perfect for roasting cauliflower.


Prepare Cauliflower: Cut the cauliflower into florets, resembling bite-sized chunks. Toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper.


Roast Cauliflower: Distribute the cauliflower evenly among the RJ Legend Mini Dutch Oven Pots. Roast for about 20-25 minutes, until tender and slightly crispy.
