Roast the cauliflower and pork tenderloin at the same time so the whole meal comes out at once. This recipe does not require preheating, so food can be served that much sooner.

BEFORE YOU START: If your tenderloin is not injected (most store-bought pork loins are — the ingredients on the package will list salt or brine), add 2 teaspoons kosher salt to the rub.
