The Accidental Locavore’s friend Cozy had this as an appetizer in New Orleans and fell in love! You will, too, as it’s super-simple to make and roasting brings out the sweetness of the cauliflower (not to mention how cool it looks when you present it). One smallish head of cauliflower feeds 4 and the whole thing takes about an hour, mostly roasting time.
The verdict: this is one of those no-fail dishes! That being said, the better your ingredients, the tastier this will be. While it’s delicious on its own, a sprinkle of lemon and some cumin, or a dash of hot sauce might be interesting. The Locavore dehydrated some sriracha recently (more about that later) and that sprinkled on top would be worth a shot. Since it’s grilling season, par-boiling it and roasting on the grill seems like a no-brainer. What do you think?
