  • 3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter (Room Temperature)

  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil

  5. Preheat the oven to 375°F

  6. Mix the butter and oil

  7. Place the cauliflower on a medium baking sheet with the head facing upwards and spread the butter-oil mix all over the cauliflower and sprinkle with flaked sea salt
