Blistered Curry Cauliflower
1 WHOLE HEAD CAULIFLOWER, Cored and cut into 1/2 IN slices
2 TBSP EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
1 GARLIC CLOVE, GRATED
1 TSP CURRY POWDER
1/2 TSP GROUND TURMERIC
FRESHLY GROUND BLACK PEPPER
1/3 CUP ROASTED, SALTED ALMONDS, CHOPPED
1/4 CUP CURRANTS, REHYDRATED AND DRAINED
1/4 CUP CHOPPED FRESH MINT
2 TSP GRATED LIME ZEST
3 TBSP SHERRY VINEGAR
1 TBSP DIJON MUSTARD
3 GARLIC CLOVES, PEELED
2 CUPS LOOSELY PACKED PARSLEY LEAVES
3/4 CUP EXTRA-VIRGIN OIL
When ready to cook, set temperature to 450 F° and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Combine the cauliflower, oil, garlic, curry powder, tumeric, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper in a large bowl. Toss until the cauliflower is evenly coated. Spread the cauliflower out onto a large baking sheet, making sure not to overcrowd the cauliflower. Place on the grill and roast until the cauliflower is tender and golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
For the Chimichurri
While cauliflower is roasting, place the vinegar, mustard, and garlic cloves in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to combine and break up the garlic. Add the herbs and pulse until evenly chopped, stopping once to scrape down the sides. Pour in the olive oil, the pulse until the herbs are coarsely chopped and a thick sauce forms. Taste, adding up to a 1 tsp of salt desired. For a thinner sauce, add additional olive oil or a 1 Tbsp of water.
Remove the cauliflower from the grill. Toss with the almonds, currants, mint and lime zest. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
If using chimichurri sauce, drizzle some over it and toss to combine. Enjoy!
