Roasted Cauliflower with Alfredo Sauce

This is an attention-getter! We like to place it in the centre of the dinner table and invite our guests to serve themselves. Cauliflower develops a wonderfully nutty flavor when it’s roasted, which makes this dish something special. If you want to increase the elegance-factor, serve it at a dinner party topped with Alfredo Sauce or Cashew Cream.

Active time: 15 minutes

Total time: 75 minutes

2 ½ cups dry white wine or veggie stock

1/3 cup olive oil

¼ cup sea salt

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoons chili flakes

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 head cauliflower, left whole, outer leaves trimmed

3 tablespoons nutritional yeast

Olive oil to serve

Sea salt to serve

  1. Heat the oven to 475°F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or roasting pan.
  2. In a large stockpot, bring the wine or veggie stock, 8 cups of water, the olive oil, salt, lemon juice, chili flakes and maple syrup to the boil.
  3. Carefully lower the cauliflower into the boiling liquid. Reduce the heat and simmer, turning the cauliflower occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes or until a knife can be easily inserted into the cauliflower stalk.
  4. Using slotted spoons, gently transfer the cauliflower to a colander. Roll the drained cauliflower out of the colander and onto the prepared baking sheet or roasting pan.
  5. Sprinkle the cauliflower with nutritional yeast and roast, rotating the pan after 20 minutes, for 30 to 40 minutes or until well browned.
  6. Transfer roasted cauliflower to a platter. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and serve as is or with the sauce of your choice.
