>Spiced Caramelized Cauliflower Florets

>from foodandwine.com

1 large head cauliflower (about 3 pounds), cut into florets
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon hot paprika
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Coarse salt, for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 500°. In a large bowl, toss the cauliflower with the butter. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, salt, pepper, sweet and hot paprika and the cinnamon. Toss the spices with the cauliflower until evenly coated. Spread the cauliflower on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast for 20 minutes, stirring once or twice, until the florets are crisp-tender and caramelized. Mound the florets on a serving platter or in a colorful glass bowl and sprinkle with coarse salt. Serve hot or warm, with toothpicks.
