Whole Roasted Cauliflower

After many, many (failed) attempts and getting pretty sick of eating it- we’ve figured out the whole roasted cauliflower. This is not only beautiful, it is the tastiest cauli you will ever consume (in your own home).

Total time: Approx 50 mins

See recipe below



For the Cauliflower:

  • Cut stem off so that cauli sits on a flat surface, but leave some leaves as they are delicious when roasted.

  • Blanch the cauliflower for three minutes in a pot of salted, boiling water. Place face down in the pot.

  • Strain water out of cauliflower, then transfer to the baking sheet you will roast it on.

  • Coat cauli generously with olive oil, salt and pepper and place in oven at 400 degrees for 55 minutes (this depends on the size of cauliflower).

  • Brush with one more tbsp of olive oil and broil for the last three minutes of roasting (watching carefully just until golden brown).

For the green sauce:

  • 1 avocado

  • Juice of 2 limes

  • Large handful of parsley

  • 1 tbsp pickled jalapeños (optional but adds a very nice flavour)

  • 4 tbsp olive oil (more if needed)

  • Salt & pepper

Directions:

  • Combine ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth

  • Spread sauce on the base of the plate you will serve. Add the cauliflower in the centre and sprinkle goat cheese, and herb of choice (we used parsley)

  • Cut into wedges or chop up and toss with sauce to serve

Enjoy this amazing and easy recipe!
