This recipe—inspired by a dish at Fujisaki, a Japanese restaurant along the Sydney waterfront—coats chunks of cauliflower with dengaku, a thick, miso-based glaze that is sweet and savory. We roast the cauliflower before tossing the richly browned florets with miso blended with vinegar and ginger, then top it with toasted pistachios, scallions and cilantro. The result is fresh, warm and rich.

2 pound head cauliflower, trimmed, cored and cut into 1½- to 2-inch florets
3 tablespoons peanut oil
Ground white pepper
⅓ cup red or white miso
4 teaspoons unseasoned rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sake
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
¼ cup shelled roasted pistachios, chopped
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

    An excellent recipe with great flavors. I added a few sesame seeds and some sesame oil to finish and subbed almonds for the pistachios. I loved the fresh herbs and all the textures.

Roasted Cauliflower with Miso Glaze

Get Ready to Cook

Servings

30 minutes

Tip

Don’t forget to heat the baking sheet for 10 to 15 minutes while preparing the cauliflower. A heated baking sheet—along with allowing the cauliflower to roast without stirring—ensure flavor-­building caramelization.

Ingredients
  • 2

    pound head cauliflower, trimmed, cored and cut into 1½- to 2-inch florets

  • 3

    tablespoons peanut oil

  • cup red or white miso

  • 4
  • 2

    teaspoons sake

  • 1

    teaspoon honey

  • 1

    teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger

  • ¼

    cup shelled roasted pistachios, chopped

  • 1

    bunch scallions, thinly sliced

  • ¼

    cup chopped fresh cilantro

Step 1 of 3

Prepare Oven

Heat the oven to 500°F with a rack in the lowest position. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place the baking sheet in the oven.

Step 2 of 3

Brown Cauliflower

3
tablespoons peanut oil
Ground white pepper

Place the cauliflower in a large bowl. Add the oil and ¼ teaspoon pepper, then toss to coat. When the oven is at temperature, quickly remove the baking sheet and distribute the cauliflower in an even layer; reserve the bowl. Roast until the cauliflower is just tender and browned in spots, 15 to 18 minutes; do not stir.

Step 3 of 3

Toss With Miso Glaze

cup red or white miso
4
teaspoons unseasoned rice vinegar
2
teaspoons sake
1
teaspoon honey
1
teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
¼
cup shelled roasted pistachios, chopped
1
bunch scallions, thinly sliced
¼
cup chopped fresh cilantro

Meanwhile, in the reserved bowl, whisk together the miso, vinegar, sake, honey, ginger and 2 tablespoons water. As soon as the cauliflower is done, transfer to the bowl with the miso mixture and gently toss. Carefully stir in the pistachios, scallions and cilantro. Transfer to a serving platter.
