Roast Cauliflower with No-Fat Brown Gravy (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

I know that you have likely seen this roast cauliflower picture on Facebook or Pinterest.  Well, I did too.  So, I went looking for recipes and couldn't find any that met my chief requirement for the sauce: NO fat.  So I made up my own recipe that I think is super delicious.  I invite you to try it.
