We like our cauliflower to be a bit charred. If you do not like charred cauliflower, then just roast the frozen cauliflower for 20 minutes total while making sure to flip half-way through.
If doubling this recipe, then just make sure the cauliflower florets remain in a single layer on the baking sheet. The cooking time is still the same!
It is important to flip the cauliflower half-way through so each side of the floret can get that tasty charred look.
