Charred Cauliflower

recipe
Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 15 minutes

Something 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.
