Charred Cauliflower Romesco
Recipe type: Side Dish

Total time: 
Serves: 4 to 6 servings
  • ½ head of cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 16 ounce jar of roasted red peppers, drained
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup roasted almonds
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  1. Sprinkle a heavy-bottomed skillet such as a cast iron skillet with vegetable oil. Cut the cauliflower florets in half, making one flat side. Place the florets cut side down in the pan and turn the heat on to medium. Next, cover the pan so that the cauliflower steams and cooks through and is velvety and soft. Check it every few minutes to make sure it is not completely black - you just want a deep dark brown char. It takes 5 to 8 minutes to cook your cauliflower.
  2. While cauliflower is cooking, place remaining ingredients in a food processor and process until very smooth. Taste and add additional salt and pepper if desired.
  3. Spread sauce on a servings place. Place charred cauliflower on top and then garnish with micrograms, if desired.
