Cook the rice
Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the ginger and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the rice, 1 ½ cups of water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and let simmer, 14 to 16 minutes, until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork and set aside in a warm spot.

While the rice cooks, on a lined sheet pan, toss the cauliflower with a drizzle of oil; season with S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, stirring halfway through, 16 to 18 minutes or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork.
