Bhutan Blossoms Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Blue Cheese and Buttermilk Dressing

 

 

Serves 6-8

 

Ingredients

1 medium cauliflower

50g unsalted butter, soft

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp Bhutan Blossoms’ Bhutanese Fiery Bouquet salt

 

Blue Cheese and Buttermilk Dressing

50g strong, blue cheese like Stilton or Roquefort

100ml buttermilk

50g sour cream

1 Tbsp white wine vinegar

2 Tbsp chives, finely chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

 

To serve

2 baby cos lettuce, washed and leaves separated.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200℃.
  2. Prepare the cauliflower by washing it and cutting off the excess leaves and fibrous stalk. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Place the whole cauliflower into the pot and gently simmer for around 15 minutes or until slightly tender. Remove from the water and drain off excess moisture. Place onto a small roasting tray.
  3. Mix the butter, olive oil and salt together and rub it into the cauliflower. Roast in the oven for around 30 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Remove from the oven and spoon over any juices from the pan.
  4. To make the dressing, crumble the cheese into a mixing bowl. Add the buttermilk and sour cream and mix with a spatula or whisk until combined. Add the vinegar and 1 Tbsp of chives and mix through. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  5. To finish, drizzle the cauliflower with some of the blue cheese dressing. Sprinkle the remaining chives over the top and a little extra Fiery Bouquet salt.
  6. Serve with fresh baby cos lettuce leaves and extra dressing.
