Whole roasted cauliflower with caper dressing Easy Food

Serves 4


1 large head of cauliflower
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and black pepper
100g vegetarian-friendly cheese, grated


For the dressing:
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
1 tbsp capers in brine, rinsed and drained
2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
½ tsp salt
4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/200˚C fan/gas mark 7 and position the rack in the centre of the oven.
  2. Lightly oil a baking dish that will fit the cauliflower. Trim off the outer leaves. Cut away the base of the stalk so the cauliflower can sit flat, then cut a cross into its base.
  3. Bring a large pan of salted water to a boil and blanch the cauliflower for one minute. Drain well and return to the hot pan for 1-2 minutes to steam dry. Pat dry thoroughly with kitchen paper.
  4. Place the cauliflower in the prepared baking dish. Drizzle the oil over the top and sprinkle with salt, black pepper and the cheese.
  5. Bake for 45-60 minutes until tender enough that the tip of a knife goes through easily. Transfer to a serving dish.
  6. For the dressing, whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, capers, parsley and salt in a small bowl, then whisk in the olive oil.
  7. Drizzle the cauliflower with the dressing and serve in big wedges.
