Roasted Cauliflower with Capers

Give me a roasted cauliflower over a steamed one any day. And Jack too. He eats this right up.

1 head (about 2 pounds) cauliflower, cut into small florets
1 Tbsp olive oil
Kosher salt and ground pepper
1 Tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp capers
1 tsp caper juice (juice from the jar)

Set oven to 450 degrees. Trim, and cut cauliflower into small florets; spread in a roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil; season with kosher salt and ground pepper. Toss to combine. Roast, tossing once or twice, until cauliflower is golden brown and tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

In a small skillet, combine butter, garlic, capers and caper juice. Cook, stirring often, until garlic is lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour over cauliflower, and toss to coat.
