  2. Combine all ingredients except for lime and cilantro in a large bowl and toss to combine.
  3. Spread cauliflower mixture onto a sheet pan and roast on the middle rack of the oven uncovered for 8 minutes then toss to move around the mixture and roast another 10 minutes until top of the cauliflower starts to slightly brown and steams.
