When you roast a cauliflower, it develops caramel-nutty flavors that are beautifully enhanced by the flavor of the browned butter. This robust dish can be the centerpiece of a vegetarian meal or a side for roasted meat. It’s also a good substitute for roasted potatoes if you’re looking to reduce your carb intake. The cauliflower needs to cook for more than an hour, with the butter added toward the end of the cooking and used as a finishing baste.
