Fork-tender and seasoned to the core

Whole Roasted Cauliflower

1 hour 10 minutes active

A head of cauliflower roasted whole and brought to the table uncut makes a striking, centerpiece-like side dish. Blanching it in heavily salted water before roasting ensures the vegetable is seasoned to its core and reduces roasting time. Cooking times are for a 2-pound cauliflower; larger ones retained more water and took longer to roast. To serve more people, cook two 2-pounders rather than a jumbo-size head. We like this served as is, but it's also delicious drizzled with tahini, Sriracha or a blend of both.
