2-3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt

3. Uncover cauliflower and brush all over with garlic-butter mixture. Return to oven and roast, uncovered, until cauliflower is tender and cooked through (a sharp knife inserted into cauliflower should enter easily) and golden on the outside, 45 to 60 minutes longer. Serve hot.
