From the Test Kitchen

In this recipe, we’re cutting cauliflower into thick slices, then roasting them to bring out the vegetable’s nutty flavor. An equally nutty sauce of brown butter and almonds, cooked with grapes and rosemary, perfectly complements the “steaks.” We’re serving it all with a salad of gorgeous purple barley, and garnishing the dish with a bit of fennel pollen for a floral touch. (You may receive white, orange, purple, or green romanesco cauliflower.)

Prepare & roast the cauliflower:
2 Prepare & roast the cauliflower:

While the barley cooks, wash and dry the cauliflower. Cut off and discard the stem end and leaves. Cut the head into 1-inch-thick slices (keeping them as intact as possible). Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; gently turn to coat. Roast 25 to 27 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and set aside in a warm place.

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
3 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the cauliflower roasts, wash and dry the remaining fresh produce. Pick the grapes off the stems; discard the stems. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Pick the rosemary leaves off the stems; discard the stems and roughly chop the leaves. Roughly chop the almonds. 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. Roughly chop the arugula.

Make the brown butter sauce:
5 Make the brown butter sauce:

Add the grapes, shallot, and rosemary to the saucepan; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the grapes are slightly softened. Turn off the heat; stir in the almonds and the juice of all 4 lemon wedges. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
