Browned Butter Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

Browned Butter Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

Growing up, my mother (who insists on loving some of the least popular vegetables) always raved about how deliciously sweet and tender cauliflower can be. The briny capers, lemon juice and sweet raisins together allow the caramelized, nutty cauliflower to shine. —Gina Myers, Spokane, Washington
