Cauliflower with Mustard-Lemon Butter


    • 1 Small Head of Cauliflower (~1.75 lbs)
    • 1 Tsp Coarse Kosher Salt
    • 6 Tbs (3/4 Stick) Butter
    • 2 Tbs Fresh Lemon Juice
    • 2 Tbs Whole Grain Dijon Mustard
    • 1.5 Tsp Finely Grated Lemon Peel
    • 1 Tbs Chopped Fresh Parsley


    • Preheat oven to 400°F. Butter rimmed baking sheet. Cut cauliflower in half, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices in single layer on prepared baking sheet; sprinkle with salt. Roast until cauliflower is slightly softened, about 15 minutes.
    • Meanwhile, melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in lemon juice, mustard, and lemon peel.
    • Spoon mustard-lemon butter evenly over cauliflower and roast until crisp-tender, about 10 minutes longer. DO AHEAD Can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature. If desired, rewarm in 350°F oven until heated through, about 10 minutes.
    • Transfer cauliflower to platter. Sprinkle with parsley and serve warm or at room temperature.


This original take on cauliflower (the florets are thinly sliced) is equally good at room temperature.
