Roasted Harissa Cauliflower

Roasted Harissa Cauliflower

So long and goodbye to boring cauliflower. Bring on the spiciness of harissa, a Mediterranean hot chile pepper paste that is so flavorful I’m quickly finding myself using on just about everything.

  • Preheat your oven to 375 F. You can also roast the cauliflower on a grill over indirect heat.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Remove any leaves from the bottom of the head of cauliflower but do not remove the stem.
  • Lower the head into the boiling water and return to a boil and boil for 4 minutes.
  • Remove and let cool.
  • Rub harissa paste over the cauliflower. No need to be shy.
  • Transfer the cauliflower to a sheet pan and place in the oven for 20-30 minutes until softened. I used a small sharp knife to test for doneness by poking the stem.
  • Remove and serve.
