Golden Cauliflower

Why slice the florets? It creates flat surfaces that brown nicely when sautéed.

Total time to prepare: 15 minutes


¼ cup pine nuts
4 cups cauliflower florets
2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbs. golden raisins
1 Tbs. drained capers
1 Tbs. red wine vinegar
¼ tsp. kosher salt

• Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake the pine nuts until well browned, 8-10 minutes.
• Slice the cauliflower florets ¼-inch thick.
• In a large pan, heat the oil over medium heat until shimmering. Sauté the cauliflower, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
• Combine the raisins, capers, vinegar, salt, and 1 Tbs. of water in a food processor. Pulse until the raisins and capers are minced. Add the pine nuts and pulse a few more times to roughly chop the nuts. Toss with the cauliflower.

Serves 6.

  1. Too many ingredients and too much mess to clean up, only to prepare a vegetable for dinner.
    Just put a frozen steamer bag of cauliflower in the microwave and finish it with butter and seasonings of your choice and serve. Delicious.

  2. Great dishes are worth every extra minute; that’s the wonderful difference between pretty good and over-the-moon great!!
