When your Thanksgiving meal needs to appease a variety of appetites, this dish does double duty as a side or vegetarian main course. It’s an impressive addition to any table, but comes together quickly (your secret’s safe with us!). Honey mustard concentrates the flavor of the cauliflower as it roasts, encasing it in a golden crust. The dipping sauce—bright green and made from fresh herbs—is the perfect finishing touch.

Honey Mustard Whole Roasted Cauliflower With Green Herb Sauce

Yield: 6 servings
Active Time:

Ingredients

For the cauliflower
1 large head cauliflower
3 cloves garlic, peeled
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon raw honey
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup olive oil

For the green herb sauce
½ cup finely chopped parsley
½ cup finely chopped cilantro
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
⅓ cup olive oil

Instructions

Make the cauliflower
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Square off the bottom of the head of cauliflower so that it sits upright; place on the prepared baking sheet. Insert the cloves of garlic into the head of cauliflower.

In a small bowl, stir together mustard, honey, salt and pepper to taste, and olive oil. Brush mixture in a thick layer all over cauliflower. Roast until dark golden brown all over and tender on the inside, about 45 minutes. A long skewer inserted into the center should pass through easily.

Make the green herb sauce
To make the sauce, stir together all the ingredients in a small bowl.

Serve the cauliflower warm with the sauce alongside.
