Prepare & roast the cauliflower or romanesco:
1 Prepare & roast the cauliflower or romanesco:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. In a small bowl, combine 1 teaspoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of water, and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Remove the leaves of the cauliflower or romanesco; cut lengthwise through the stem into 1-inch-thick steaks (keeping them as intact as possible). Place on a sheet pan. Using a spoon, evenly top with the chile paste mixture; season with salt and pepper. Roast 25 to 27 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.
