Butter-roasted cauliflower

These golden cauliflower florets may be small, but their flavor is mighty! Butter-roasting infuses cauli with a nutty flavor that melts in your mouth. The texture of potatoes minus the carbs. So get cooking...

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Trim and cut the cauliflower into small florets; the smaller, the quicker they will be done.
  2. Place in a large baking dish. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Cover with thin slices of butter. Bake on upper rack in the oven and roast for about 20 minutes or more, depending on size of the florets.

    SOOOOOO simply perfect! Good too with a dizzle of lemon zest and a pinch of pecorino!
    Will try with other veggies!

    Could I use frozen cauliflower florets for this dish?

    Yes, but you may need to adjust the cooking time.

    I made this with fresh cauliflower the first time, and with frozen the second time. The fresh cauliflower still had some solidness and was so much better. The frozen cauliflower was mushy.

    placed these out on the Teager in a proper oven-pan... but at 400 degrees, the butter starts to smoke something fierce (butter starts to smoke around 375. Next time I'll use Ghee instead)! Had to lower temp to 375 and continue. Turned out great (other than the billowing smoke that made our backyard look like it was on fire! LOL)

    Thank you for your feedback. We have not experienced this issue with a traditional oven at 400.
