Whole Roasted Cauliflower, Capers and Dates - Chef Recipe by Duncan Welgemoed


Ingredients

1 large cauliflower
50g pitted Medjool dates
1 clove garlic
80g capers
50g chopped, roasted almonds
50mL extra virgin olive oil
100g unsalted butter
1 lemon
Salt and white pepper to taste

Method

Steam the cauliflower for 10 minutes and then refresh it in ice water.

Chop dates and capers, crush a little garlic with a tablespoon of almonds.

In a hot pan, add a little olive oil and roast the hell out of the cauliflower in the oven until it starts to caramelise.

Once browned all over, add butter to the pan and when foaming, add the rest of the ingredients.

Baste the cauliflower with butter, dates and capers until it has soaked in all the flavours.

Drain, season with salt and white pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice before serving.
