    Whole Roasted Cauliflower

    Share

    Whole Roasted Cauliflower seems to be all the rage in Middle Eastern restaurants at the moment. They often serve it drizzled with tahini and toasted almonds. My version is a bit fresher and zingier. Lemon, garlic, cumin, and dill work in perfect harmony with the melting butter to pack some flavor into this cauliflower recipe. I prefer roasting over slow-cooked whole cauliflower as I think it gives the vegetable a wonderful caramelized taste.

    This is a really fun dish to serve at a dinner party or any time you have friends over – the whole cauliflower looks great on a plate and everyone can pile in to cut it for themselves. This recipe is easily made vegan by subbing the butter for olive oil.
