Charred Cauliflower

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup)
Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 15 minutesSomething magical happens when cauliflower is roasted to a crispy char: It gains an earthy sweetness that truffle-infused olive oil further enhances. For this recipe, we thought white truffle-infused oil was well worth the price, but we also loved it with lemon-infused and basil-infused oil, so feel free to substitute. Try Risi e Bisi for another recipe that uses lemon-infused olive oil.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups cauliflower florets (about 1 medium head or 1 1/2 [12-ounce] packages)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons white truffle-infused, lemon-infused, or basil-infused olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
