Number of serving: 2
1 medium head cauliflower (about 1 pound), trimmed and cut into small florets

4 tablespoons  olive oil

1½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice

teaspoon red-pepper flakes

4 mint leaves, torn up.


  • Preheat the oven to 400F. In a large mixing bowl, toss the cauliflower florets with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and a pinch of salt.
  • Transfer the cauliflower to a rimmed baking sheet and roast, rotating the baking sheet and stirring the cauliflower halfway through, until the edges are golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely. In a medium pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Add the cauliflower and cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until crispy and warmed through, about 4 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, toss the cauliflower with the lemon juice, pepper flakes and mint.
  • Season with salt and serve immediately.
