Steps 1-2

– Now cut the florets into bite size pieces. I tried to chop it in such way that each floret had a flat side to it. This way when we place the flat side down, it helps in roasting the florets faster. – Place the chopped pieces in a large bowl and add the olive oil, salt, pepper and cumin powder. Mix it well.
