Let’s Find Out How You Can Make Butter Roasted Cauliflower With Sage:
Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 50 Minutes
Cauliflower: 1 piece
Olive oil: 3 tablespoon
Sage: 1 bunch
Garlic: 1 clove
Unsalted butter: 150 grams
Nutmeg: a pinch
Salt: 1 teaspoon
Black pepper: ½ teaspoon
Crushed red chilli: ½ teaspoon
Method Of Preparation:
Choose a big cauliflower for this recipe. Trim its leaves. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree Celsius. Take a baking dish that is slightly bigger in size to accommodate the cauliflower. Brush olive oil over the cauliflower. Rub some salt, black pepper and crushed red chilli over the cauliflower, making sure that you cover the entire surface.
Put the cauliflower in the roasting pan and let it cook for 45 minutes to an hour in the oven. Cook until it loses its raw taste. However, retain its crunch and do not let the cauliflower wilt.
Take softened butter for this recipe. Keep it in a bowl and mix it with some crushed garlic, sage and a pinch of nutmeg powder. Add a bit of salt and pepper for taste. Generously brush the butter mixture over the cauliflower after you take it out of the oven.
After basting the cauliflower with the seasoned butter mixture, put it back in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes more. Let it roast until it softens from the center. To check whether it is cooked or not, poke a knife at the center. If it pierces the stalk easily, the cauliflower is ready to be served. In order to enhance the taste and flavor of the cauliflower, keep basting it with the butter a few times while roasting. It is now ready to be served for Christmas.
