Garlic Roasted Cauliflower By Ina Garten.  


This recipe is surprising in so many ways. First, who thinks of cauliflower as flavorful? Second, roasting all that garlic in olive oil makes it delicious. And third, it's so easy! Roast the cauliflower with the garlic and then toss it with toasted pine nuts, parsley, and fresh lemon juice. You'll never think cauliflower is boring again.
 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 head garlic, cloves separated but not peeled
  • 1 large head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into large florets
  • 4 1/2 T olive oil
  • 2 1/2 t kosher salt 
  • 1 t ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 3 T pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice

Directions:

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Bring a small pot of water to a boil and add the garlic cloves. Boil for 15 seconds; drain and peel. Cut the largest cloves in half lengthwise. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the cauliflower with the garlic, 3 T olive oil, 2 t salt, and black pepper. Spread into a single layer and roast, stirring twice, until the cauliflower is tender and the garlic is lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer the cauliflower to a large bowl with the garlic and pan juices. Add the remaining 1 1/2 T olive oil, parsley, pine nuts, and lemon juice. Sprinkle with 1/2 t salt, toss well and serve hot or warm. Serves 6.
