Whole Roasted Cauliflower

This Whole Roasted Cauliflower is delicious, savoury and practically falls apart in your mouth. It would make a fantastic main at a dinner party or at your Christmas lunch.

It is covered in a well-balanced marinade that perfectly matches the creamy texture of the cauliflower. I made the marinade with two types of tomato products (tomato paste and sundried tomatoes), capers, fresh garlic and olive oil. All of these ingredients are mashed and ground together in a mortar and pestle. However, feel free to use a blender or small food processor if you like.

Overall, you only need 8 ingredients for this dish. Prep time will take you around 10 minutes and once the cauliflower is in the oven, you won’t need to spend much more hands-on time on the dish. After baking, you simply add the toasted hazelnuts and fresh parsley and your dish is ready to serve.

Please keep in mind that the baking time depends on the size of you cauliflower. The cauliflowers that I used while testing this recipes where all between 700 und 800 grams in weight. They took between 90 and 100 minutes to bake. If your cauliflower is larger, it will likely need more time in the oven. Simply poke a knife into the centre of the cauliflower; when the cauliflower is fully cooked, the knife will go through it with ease.
