This is our adaptation of a recipe from Diane Kochilas’ book “My Greek Table.” A mixture of olive oil, mustard, balsamic vinegar, honey and garlic is slathered onto a head of cauliflower before roasting. The cauliflower then gets a finishing swipe of mustard and a coating of feta and parsley before roasting for a few minutes more to soften the feta. The cauliflower is simply cut into wedges for serving.




Don't forget to line the baking sheet with foil or kitchen parchment. This will help prevent any drips of the oil-mustard mixture from scorching and smoking during roasting. Also, don't worry if the cauliflower browns very deeply—chars, even—in the oven. This caramelization adds sweet, nutty flavor to the dish.

Easy and delicious!
I made it yesterday as I had all the ingredients. Delicious. And I used the leftover sauce as salad dressing.

This cauliflower was so delicious. I had to stop myself from eating the whole thing probably the best vegetable I have ever made and I have been cooking for about 45 years!

Crazy Good!
I've never been a big fan of cauliflower and therefore rarely make it, but for some reason this recipe caught my eye. I was shocked at how delicious it was! I could definitely have eaten the whole thing! Without a doubt, will be making this again.
