grilled cauliflower, sage & brown butter



This is a dish that could be an amazing side or the center of the meal. It is that good and I think my Dad would easily agree. I prepared this for my parents when I was visiting last weekend – there is nothing better than delicious meals, wine and family in my opinion. This dish is so simple and will even convert the non-cauliflower lovers!


grilled cauliflower, sage & brown butter – adapted from The New York Times

1 head cauliflower, sliced in 1 inch thick slices (some will crumble)

Olive oil, salt & pepper

3 Tbsp butter

2 Tbsp whole sage leaves

Mist cauliflower with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. We used a grill pan for veggies but you could also roast the cauliflower. While it is cooking, melt the butter in a small pan. When hot add sage leaves and let sizzle until crisp. Set aside and heat butter until it turns brown, stirring occasionally. When cauliflower is done grilling or roasting, pour butter and sage leaves over top and serve.

    You weren’t kidding when you said this recipe could convert a non-cauliflower person. I’ve never really enjoyed the white, broccoli impersonator, but your recipe looks delicious, simple, and gorgeously gourmet.
