You can stick a few florets in with the potatoes when doing a roast...

A dish I do that has become a regular is roasted cauliflower steaks.

Take large cauliflower head, remove leaves, turn it stalk side up on chopping board and slice in half down middle of stalk,

Now take each half in turn and cut as wide a slice as you can down edge of the stalk. Thats your 'steak'.

Lay in roasting tray, brush with oil, turn over and repeat, roast in hot oven 45-60 minutes, turning half way, through cooking to brown/crisp as preferred at edges.

I serve this with roasted okra. Brush with oil, lay on baking tray, put in oven wih cauliflower. Turn halfway through. Okra will shrink and become crispy.

Because the two are rather dry, I add dhal as a sauce.

(The cauliflower steak was inspired by a dish served on Viking River Cruises. I think they par boiled/steamed the steak and finished it in a saute pan - they called it Sauteed cauliflower steak)

Tesco supermarket had for Christmas a whole cauliflower head rubbed with turmeric and spices wrapped in pastry to be baked ala beef wellington. See https://www.veganfoodandliving.com/tesc ... rty-foods/

Prior to roasting, sprinkle with whatever seasonings you prefer. I normally use cumin & red chili powder. If I am feeling lazy I just grab the garam masala and use that. Smoked paprika is another favorite.

Yes, most of time we just toss with olive oil, garlic, and seasonings (like David smoked paprika and garam masala lead, will have to try cumin/chile). Another good one is to toss with oil and S&P, then about 10 minutes before finishing (when you do final stir) topping with some finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano , then drizzling with a lemon/caper sauce when it comes out.

Well I guess that qualifies as a recipe!

I don't usually look to add cheese to dishes, but that sounds delicious. And I always top roasted cauliflower with some sort of brightening acidity (vinegar, lemon, lime), but of course the capers add that extra dimension.

I love the cauliflower steaks Dale and Pete discussed. I often make a butter/lemon/caper/garlic sauce--a basic piccata--to drizzle over the finished 'steak'.

Also, for roasted? I make a simple bechamel with low fat milk and season it with parm, lemon (juice and grated rind), and rosemary and toss the finished cauliflower in that. With rack of lamb? A combination from heaven.
