A long time family favorite; this simple, easy and great tasting recipe combines roasted cauliflower with browned butter. Roasting brings out maximum flavor from the cauliflower and results in a scrumptious caramelized crust, a tender and creamy inside, with a slightly sweet and nutty flavor. The addition of browned butter both enhances and intensifies the nutty flavor and imparts richness.
"I've been roasting a lot of different vegetables lately and this is the first time I tried Cauliflower and I loved the results -- very easy and tasty. If I were serving to company, I would do the butter process at the end, but I didn't do that for myself. I use it cold in my salad, eat plain, eat hot. Great recipe for the ol' cauliflower!"- Starletdoe
Top-ranked recipe named "Roasted Cauliflower"
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Toss cauliflower with oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Spread cauliflower evenly in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast in hot oven until softened and lightly browned, about 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure even roasting. Test with a fork for desired doneness.
Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat; cook about 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Combine cauliflower and browned butter in a bowl, and gently toss to coat. Serve warm.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
Note: Amounts of garlic, olive oil and butter will depend on size of cauliflower head and taste.
Cutting the cauliflower into wedges (rather than florets) helps aid in caramelization since more surface area of the vegetable comes in direct contact with the pan.

iipostmvh 4 months agoI too do not like cauliflower, normally!! But this recipe converted me and made me a fan. I also added onion and thyme and left out the browned butter and lemon. I think it's a great side dish.
