Roasted Cauliflower with Nutty Lemon Mustard

This is a real favorite for our family. We always make a double batch so there it some left for the next day. It’s my oldest daughter’s most requested item. Great for dinner with grilled meats, fish or makes a pleasant lunch with just a nice green salad and crusty bread.

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 3 tablespoons walnut or olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2/3 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Optional Additions we also like:

  • A few drops of hot sauce
  • About a tablespoon of chopped fresh herb. Dill and parsley are my favorites with the lemon and mustard.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

In a roasting pan, toss the cauliflower with 2 tablespoons of the oil and the salt. Roast until tender and lightly browned, stirring once or twice. 15 to 20 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, half-and-half, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add the cooked cauliflower, scraping any residual caramelized bits and cooking oil into the bowl. Add the nuts and pepper, and toss to coat. Serve warm.

    Lemon oil may be used in aromatherapy. Researchers at The Ohio State University found that lemon oil aroma does not influence the human immune system, but may enhance mood.
