Butter-Roasted Cauliflower with Za’atar

I’ve been obsessed with za’atar since the fabulously fresh stuff I found at the Carmel Market in Tel Aviv.  I love the earthiness of the blend.  And I’ve been obsessed with cauliflower and za’atar ever since the amazing dish a had at Newport‘s La Vasca.  So I put together this simple recipe.  I hope you like it too.
