Coliflor, mi nuevo amigo / Cauliflower, my new friend

En la casa de mis viejos, nunca se comió (ni se come ahora, tampoco) coliflor, por la simple razón de que mi mamá lo odia y no lo compra ni prepara. Por extensión, nunca lo comí yo tampoco.  Hace bastante, se me ocurrió probarlo, gratinado al horno con queso, y quedó tan espantoso que lo tuve que tirar todo.
Pero hace poco, una amiga publicó en FB su receta de coliflor asado y, bueno, acá estamos. Compré medio coliflor y lo hice. Corté una rodaja de 2-3 cm y otras flores sueltas, pincelé todo con sal, garam masala y aceite, lo puse al horno una media hora, hasta que se doró muy bien. Una vez fuera del horno, perejil fresco, limón y listo. ¡Riquísimo!

At my parents’ we never had (and they still never do) cauliflower, simply because my mom hates it and never buys/prepares any. Therefore, I never used to have it. Some time ago, I tried some with cheese gratin and it was so terrible that I had to throw it away.
However, a while back a friend posted in Facebook her own roasted cauliflower recipe and, well, here we are. I bought half a cauliflower, cut a 2-3 cm thick slice, brushed it with oil, salt and garam masala, put it in the hot oven for about half an hour (until it browned and became tender). Once out of the oven, I sprinkled it with fresh parsley, squeezed some lemon on it and voilà! Yummy!
