Roast Cauliflower Bites with Kale Pesto

Roast Cauliflower Bites with Kale Pesto


  • 1 large head cauliflower

  • Cooking spray

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 bunch Tuscan kale

  • 1 large clove garlic

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • Grated Pecorino cheese

  • 2-3 tablespoons pine nuts

  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

  • Nutmeg


Pre-heat the oven to 450°F. Slice the cauliflower into two 1-inch-thick steaks and cut into florets so they are about two bites each. Spray with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Roast on a baking sheet to golden and caramelized, about 25 minutes. Puree a few handfuls of kale in a food processor with 1 large clove garlic, olive oil, a fat handful of grated Pecorino cheese, pine nuts and lemon juice, and salt, pepper and nutmeg, to taste. Arrange the cauliflower steak bites on a platter and top with rounded teaspoonful dollops of pesto.
