Coliflor con Anchoas: Roasted Cauliflower, Chiles, Anchovies, Pine Nuts

Browned in butter and accented with lemon juice and zest is a delectable mix of cauliflower, dried fruit, anchovies, and toasted pine nuts.


  • 1 pound cauliflower, separated into florets
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1 Serrano chile finely sliced or 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts

In a large pot heat the butter and olive oil over medium high heat until the butter begins to brown, add the cauliflower and sauté until nicely browned and tender, about 6 minutes.
