    Roast cauliflower with anchovies and capers

    Roasting brings out cauliflower’s nuttiness – a great carrier for the bright, salty flavours of anchovy, lemon and capers. 

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 40 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes

    Serves: Serves 6 as a side

    Ingredients

    • 2 cauliflowers, cut lengthways into 1cm slices (with the stalk)
    • 3 tbsp olive oil
    • 75g unsalted butter, plus an extra knob
    • 60g dried breadcrumbs
    • 6 anchovy fillets in olive oil, drained and chopped
    • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
    • 2 tbsp nonpareille capers, rinsed
    • 1 lemon, zest, plus a squeeze of juice
    • 2 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4. Put the cauliflower slices on a baking tray; splash with the oil. Season well and roast for 30-35 minutes, until just cooked through and tinged with gold.

    2. Meanwhile, melt a knob of butter in a frying pan set over a medium heat; add the breadcrumbs. Stir for a few minutes, until crisp and golden. Scoop into a bowl and cool. Wipe out the pan.

    3. When the cauliflower is cooked, melt the butter and anchovies in the pan over a medium heat, stirring. Bubble gently until golden (about 4 minutes). Stir in the garlic, take off the heat; add the capers.

    4. Add a squeeze of lemon juice; pour over the cauliflower. Sprinkle over the parsley and lemon zest, then scatter with the crumbs.
