  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat, whisking to ensure it doesn't burn, until light brown and nutty-smelling. Remove from heat.

  • Toss cauliflower florets with the brown butter and salt until well combined. Transfer to a baking sheet.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until just tender, about 15 minutes. Remove and toss hot cauliflower with red onion, Pecorino Romano cheese, and mint. Drizzle with lemon juice and season with more salt to taste.

I needed to add an additional 5 minutes of cooking time for my cauliflower to be crisp-tender. Other than that I made this as directed. I really liked how the browned butter added a nutty flavor to this. We usually just use olive oil when roasting veggies but I might need to re-think that in the future. Not sold on the mint in here but we enjoyed it. I think if I was to make it again I'd skip the mint and maybe add some basil instead. Read More
