Ingredients

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon lightly crumbled saffron threads

1/4 teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed

2 cloves garlic, smashed

1 shallot, chopped

Kosher salt

1 head cauliflower, cut into florets

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Chopped fresh parsley, for topping

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the saffron, coriander, garlic, shallot and 1 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until the shallot is translucent and the oil turns yellow, about 5 minutes. Add the cauliflower, lemon juice and 1/3 cup water. Increase the heat to medium high and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower turns yellow and the water has mostly evaporated, about 5 minutes.
  2. Transfer the skillet to the oven. Roast, stirring halfway through, until the cauliflower is tender and golden, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and sprinkle with parsley.
