Roasted Cauliflower w/ Caper Raisin Nut Relish
Why do we think of preparing cauliflower only in the cold weather months, when it grows in the summer! At least it does here.
It's cauliflower season right now in the Garden State (that would be NJ).
I pick it up weekly at the farmer's market and make my famous egg salad with it for lunch, and roast it with salsa verde or serve it with this amazing caper raisin relish with nuts and parsley.
Sometimes I add in an anchovy, just because....you can change up the nuts if you don't love almonds, you can certainly use pine nuts or hazelnuts.
I personally love almonds, especially marconas toasted, but the last time I made this I used those fancy roasted salted almonds in the can, and boy was it delish.
Serve this along side with grilled chicken, it's so good.
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
For the relish:
2 tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 tbsp golden raisins
1/4 toasted almonds, roughly chopped
1 tbsp sherry wine vinegar
2 tbsp drained capers
3 tbsp olive oil
sea salt & pepper
Make the relish and set aside.
Toss the cauliflower with olive oil and sprinkle liberally with kosher salt.
Roast on a baking sheet at 450F for 25 minutes, turning once, so both sides are nice and brown.
Spoon the relish over the roasted vegetables on a large platter.
I could eat the entire bowl!!!!
