Honey-Lemon-Glazed Cauliflower

Scott Phillips

Servings: four.

Use whatever variety of honey that you like best—a mild variety such as clover, or one with a stronger flavor like chestnut.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium head cauliflower (1-1/4 lb.), cored and cut into 1-inch florets (about 7 cups)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 medium red onion, finely diced
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. sweet smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro

Preparation

  • Heat 3 Tbs. of the oil in a heavy duty 12-inch skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and 1/2 tsp. salt and stir to coat. Cook, without stirring, until the cauliflower is browned on one side, about 4 minutes. Turn each piece over and cook, without stirring, until evenly browned on the second side, about 4 minutes more. Reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking, stirring often, until browned all over, about 4 minutes longer.

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir 2 Tbs. water and the remaining 1 Tbs. oil with the onion, honey, coriander, paprika, and pepper flakes.

    Add the onion mixture to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, about 1 minute. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until most of the liquid has evaporated and the cauliflower is glazed, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl, stir in the lemon juice and zest, and garnish with the cilantro. Serve immediately.

    I was not overly impressed as the red onion flavour was much too sharp for the mild cauliflower. I cooked the combination for a lot longer in order to ensure that the onion was cooked through and then the cauliflower become mushy. I will not make this again.

    This cauliflower recipe is beyond delicious. It is full of flavor, and the honey and lemon is just a great touch. Even if you don't like cauliflower, guaranteed you will enjoy this dish. Have everything chopped and measured beforehand - this will make it very easy.
