Cauliflower is always a hit in my home, even raw with dip. This is a really different way of serving cauliflower for that extra special side dish.
2 heads cauliflower, cut vertically into 1/2-inch-thick steaks (4 to 6 steaks total)
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons pine nuts
1/4 cup golden raisins
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Place the cauliflower steaks on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides. Transfer to the oven and bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes, flipping after the first 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, add the pine nuts to a dry medium saute pan and toast over medium heat until brown, about 3 minutes. Add the raisins and the butter, and season with salt. Cook until the butter has melted and coats the pine nuts and raisins. Off the heat, stir in the parsley.
Transfer the roasted cauliflower to a serving platter. Pour the pine nut-raisin mixture over the top.
