From the Test Kitchen

This dish highlights the delectable potential of one of autumn’s most abundant vegetables: cauliflower. We’re roasting thick slices until they develop a crisp, golden crust and a tender, sweet interior. Our “steaks” get an elevated topping of juicy grapes, toasty hazelnuts and fresh rosemary quickly cooked in a brown butter sauce, which also lends its incredible flavor to a hearty farro and arugula salad. A pinch of fennel pollen (an intensely aromatic spice with notes of citrus and sweet anise) completes the dish with sophisticated flair.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Trim off and discard the stem end and leaves of the cauliflower. Cut the head into 1-inch-thick pieces (keeping them as intact as possible) and place on a sheet pan. Finely chop the arugula. Using a peeler, remove the yellow rind of the lemon, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind to get 2 teaspoons of zest (or use a zester). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Remove and discard any stems from the grapes; halve the grapes. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Roughly chop the hazelnuts. Pick the rosemary leaves off the stems; discard the stems and roughly chop the leaves.

2 Roast the cauliflower:

Drizzle the cauliflower with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; gently turn to thoroughly coat. Roast 24 to 26 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and set aside in a warm place.
