Another stunning vegetarian dish by Tracy Foulkes. More and more I find wine goes really well with vegetarian dishes. Especially if weight for weight the two are equally balanced.
Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Almond & Herb Drizzle
3 Small Cauliflower heads, stalks trimmed
1/4 cup NOMU Extra Virgin Olive Oil
NOMU Sea Salt
1 medium onion or 2 shallots, finely diced
100g almonds, roughly chopped
Handful of sage
1 tbsp butter
1-2 garlic gloves, finely chopped
large handful of Italian Parsley, roughly chopped
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Place the cauliflower heads, stalk end down, in a small roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil until well coated and season with salt. Roast for one hour until tender and golden brown.
Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat and sauté the onions with a grinding of salt until soft and translucent. Add the almonds and sage and fry until slightly browned. Add the butter and garlic and stir until melted and bubbling. Add the Italian parsley, stir through briefly and serve immediately drizzled over the roasted cauliflower.
Serves 4 to 6
