Roasted Cauliflower With Lemon Brown Butter

Roasted Cauliflower With Lemon Brown Butter created by Karen Elizabeth

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.

  • In a small pan, heat oil until rippling; add sage and cook, while stirring, until crisped, about 2 minutes.
  • Drain on paper toweling and transfer oil to a large bowl.
  • Let sage cool, then crumble into a small bowl; stir in coarse salt and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F; place a roasting pan, with about an inch of water on bottom of oven.
  • Add cauliflower to bowl of oil and season with table salt; toss to coat.
  • Spread cauliflower out on 2 baking sheets and bake until lightly browned, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, melt butter in a small pan over medium heat until foamy.
  • Once foam subsides, stir often, and once solids are browned, turn off heat and squeeze all the lemon juice into pan and stir well.
  • Transfer cauliflower to a bowl, pour butter on top, add lemon zest, season with about half the sage salt, toss; taste and add more sage salt as needed.

    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
