Nothing makes me happier that quick easy recipes that are full of flavor. This recipe gives me all of those things at once. It's bright, flavorful and incredibly easy to make. It's just fresh cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, rosemary, sage, garlic and olive oil. It's great as a side item or even as a main course. I used my large cast iron skillet to make this dish but you can always use a baking dish. You just need to make sure it's a dish that is deep enough to contain all of the delicious juices. Warning this dish is super tasty so you may want to double it.
Cook Time 25 Minutes
2 cups of cherry tomatoes (I sliced some of them in half and left some whole)
1/2 cauliflower broken into large pieces
4 garlic cloves minced
1 sprig of rosemary broken into pieces
3-4 fresh sage leaves
4 tbs of extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbs of fresh parsley.
Preheat oven to 400*
Add everything except the garlic to a baking dish or cast iron skillet
Add about 1/2 tsp of salt and generous amount of black pepper
Add the garlic on top. Do not mix it. You don't want the garlic to burn.
Place on the middle oven rack and cook for about 25-30 minutes or until the tomatoes breakdown and the cauliflower is nice and tender.
Remove from the oven and add additional salt and pepper to taste.
I loved using a cast iron skillet for this dish. It does a great job of retaining heat and breaking down the tomatoes so they can release their delicious juices.
I always add the garlic last and leave it on top. It will cook down into the tomatoes as it cooks You don't want it on the bottom of the pan because it may burn and become bitter. So just throw it on top.
After about 25 minutes the tomatoes will breakdown and become super juicy and add so much flavor to the cauliflower. I don't even remove the rosemary and sage leaves. I think they add a rustic touch to the dish. I just discard them before eating, Just throw some fresh parsley on top and serve.
