from Julie Van Rosendaal
Thanks to chef Bern Glatz for sharing this recipe, which has been one of the most popular at the new(ish) veggie-heavy eatery, Ten Foot Henry.
1 whole cauliflower
1/4 c. pepitas (green pumpkin seeds)
1 bunch cilantro, washed
1 bunch parsley, washed
2 garlic cloves
1 t. salt
1/2 c. olive oil
1-1/2 c. plain Greek yogurt
juice of 4 lemons (about 1/3 c.)
2 t. salt
Core the cauliflower and blanch it in a large pot of boiling salted water for 3 minutes. Drain well and place on a baking sheet or in a cast-iron skillet and roast, uncovered, at 350°F for 35 minutes, or until tender and deep golden. Toss the pepitas with a drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and toast alongside the cauliflower for 5-10 minutes, or until golden. Set aside.
To make the salsa verde, set aside a small handful of the herbs and finely chop the rest of the cilantro, parsley and garlic (or pulse it in the food processor); add a big pinch of salt and slowly pour in the oil until you have the right consistency. To make the yogurt, whisk together the yogurt, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Serve the roasted cauliflower drizzled with salsa verde and lemon yogurt, scattered with toasted pepitas.
