Cauliflower is one of those vegetables that go from ho-hum to stellar once roasted. The addition of soy sauce and pepper in this recipe makes for a salty-peppery-sweet snack. Try it as a healthy side to our classic mac and cheese recipe.

Instructions

  1. 1Heat the oven to 450°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat. Allow to marinate for 20 minutes, tossing cauliflower occasionally.
  2. 2Arrange half of the cauliflower in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast until tender and slightly blackened, about 20 minutes.
  3. 3Remove from the oven and repeat with remaining cauliflower. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Beverage pairing: Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc, California. Cauliflower has a nice blend of sweet and bitter, and here it’s accented by the lift of pepper and the umami of soy sauce. It deserves a complex wine, and this white is one of the most complex and delicious California delivers. A blend of white Rhône grapes, the unoaked wine merges honeyed notes of tropical fruits with a slightly bitter floral flavor, all held together by a stirring minerality.
