Caramelized Cauliflower

(recipe, Jim Dixon)


This will change the way you think about this often-maligned member of the cabbage family.


  1. 1 head cauliflower
  2. 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  3. Pinch sea salt


  1. Trim the leaves and core from the cauliflower, place it upright on a cutting board, and slice straight down into roughly ½-inch pieces. Break apart the slices from the center, but don’t worry if they’re not completely uniform. Toss with the olive oil and sea salt, transfer to a shallow baking dish large enough to hold the cauliflower in a single layer, and bake at 350 degrees, stirring occasionally, for about 40 minutes or until nicely browned.
