Roasted cauliflower, 9 different ways

By TASTE, 19 April 2018

Roasting cauliflower brings out a wonderful nuttiness that you just want to inhale. Discover a few of our favourite flavour combinations for some serious show-stopping sides.

Let's start with a soup (or 2)

Roast cauliflower combined with garlic and cannellini beans makes for a wholesome, creamy soup. It's the perfect starter or light meal.

Looking for something a little less blitzed and a lot more crunchy? This whole roasted cauliflower soup was inspired by the French classic crème Madame du Barry.

Some like it hot

Peri-peri and the sweet nuttiness of roast cauliflower are a fiery match. 5 minutes to prepare and 40 minutes in the oven. Are you ready?

For an aromatic dish that packs a punch, roast cauliflower florets with an array of spices including coriander seeds, cumin and cardamon. Drizzle with a hot homemade chimichurri. Get the roast cauliflower with chimichurri here.

Keep it classic

This isn't the microwave variety of your childhood but rather, a major upgrade on the classic. Serve whole roasted cauliflower smothered in a mature Cheddar cheese sauce. The perfect side to your Sunday lunch.

Alternatively, whip up a fragrant tahini sauce for serving. Mix tahini with the juice from a lemon, chilli and roasted cumin and coriander. Either drizzle over the cauliflower, or serve on the side as a dipping sauce.

Stay fresh

Pair roast cauliflower steaks with a homemade parsley oil, made from fresh herbs and almond oil The light, toasty flavour of the almond oil makes it a great match for fresh herbs.
