1 Prepare & roast the cauliflower:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce.

Cut out and discard the core of the cauliflower; cut into small florets. Add to the bowl of chile paste; season with salt and pepper and stir to thoroughly coat. Reserving the bowl, transfer the coated cauliflower to the sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 22 to 24 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.
