Roasted Cauliflower over Quinoa
Recipe: Roasted Cauliflower over Quinoa


  • 1 head (1 pound) cauliflower, rinsed, cored, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup dry quinoa
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter*
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced anchovy or anchovy paste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 400˚.
  2. In a bowl, toss cauliflower with the olive oil to coat. Lightly season with kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. Distribute evenly on a baking sheet, and roast for 15 minutes. Remove, turn cauliflower pieces over, and continue cooking an additional 10-20 or until the cauliflower is just tender and lightly browned.
  3. While the cauliflower is roasting, cook quinoa according to package directions. In a large sauté pan, melt butter. Add garlic and anchovy and sauté over low heat 2 minutes or until garlic is fragrant but not browned. Toss cauliflower in anchovy butter and parsley. Serve over quinoa.

*Olive oil may be substituted, if desired.
