In classic French cooking, “à la polonaise” refers to a garnish of breadcrumbs, chopped hard-cooked egg, butter and parsley; cauliflower commonly receives this treatment. In this recipe, we lighten things up—but retain the essence of chou-fleur à la polonaise—by using fruity olive oil instead of butter and panko breadcrumbs that toast up crisp and airy. Briny capers and lemon also add lots of spark. Serve this as a side or as a light meal with a simple green salad alongside.

Tip

Don’t stir the cauliflower during the first 20 minutes of roasting. This allows the florets to brown nicely, which develops a rich, nutty flavor.
