Lemon and Honey Glazed Cauliflower
Makes 4 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Ease of Preparation: Easy
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium head cauliflower (1-1/4 lb.), cored and cut into 1-inch florets (about 7 cups)
1 medium red onion, finely diced
2 Tbs. honey
1 tsp. ground coriander
1/2 tsp. sweet smoked paprika
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
1 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro
1. Heat 3 Tbs. of the oil in a heavy duty 12-inch skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and stir to coat. Cook, without stirring, until browned on one side, about 4 minutes. Turn each piece over and cook, without stirring, until evenly browned on the second side, about 4 minutes more.
2. Reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking, stirring often, until browned all over, about 4 minutes longer.
3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir 2 Tbs. water and the remaining 1 Tbs. oil with the onion, honey, coriander, paprika, and pepper flakes.
4. Add the onion mixture to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, about 1 minute. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until most of the liquid has evaporated and the cauliflower is glazed, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl, stir in the lemon juice and zest, and garnish with the cilantro.
