    Do I remove the dish of water once I’m ready to put the cauliflower in the oven? Or do I leave both dishes in there?

    I’m a little confused. Do you put the cauliflower in the baking dish with the water? If so how much water and then you cover with foil. This seems to be steaming the cauliflower not roasting.
