From the Test Kitchen

For hearty complement to seared steaks, you’ll make a savory combination of potatoes and cauliflower—mashed together with melty smoked gouda for a delightfully cheesy finish. A simple side of broccoli—dressed with fresh lemon juice and zesty garlic paste, then topped with tangy parmesan cheese—lends even more rich flavor to the dish.

1 Prepare the ingredients:

Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut out and discard the core of the cauliflower; cut into small florets. Combine the diced potatoes and cauliflower florets in a bowl. Grate the gouda on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Thinly slice the chives. Halve the lemon crosswise; squeeze the juice into a large bowl, straining out  the seeds. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater).

To the bowl of lemon juice, add half the parmesan and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Stir to combine. Add the roasted broccoli; toss to coat.
