    threeovens's Note:

    I came across this in my local newspaper. I am discovering that I really like cauliflower! I wouldn't touch it when I was a kid, but now I appreciate how versatile a vegetable it really is. This recipe is really interesting because the brown butter is made with fried sage leaves and roasting the cauliflower adds an additional layer of flavor.

      A very simple recipe that I enjoyed, although I think I was a little over-generous with the salt --- but then, I'm not a salt-lover, DH found it perfect. This is a really good way to do cauliflower and now that I have planted sage in the garden, no reason not to enjoy it more often :) Thank you threeovens, made for PRMR tag game
