Inspired by chicken marbella from The Silver Palate, here is a vegetarian version of chicken marbella, using roasted cauliflower. It is sweet, salty and has some agrodolce vibes — sooo yummy!
This easy roasted cauliflower dish is inspired by one of my favorite food memories, chicken marbella. My mom used to make chicken marbella when I was a kid in the 90s, and when i was recipe testing this recipe, my hands smelled just like my youth. I think the combination of the dried fruits, the olives, and the capers is such a classic combo.
To make this dish, you’re going to marinate the dried fruit + olives + capes in oil and vinegar while you roast the veggies.
After the cauliflower steaks are finished roasting, you will spoon the marinated dried fruit + olives + capers over it, and sprinkle some parsley on top.
Savoury and salty roasted cauliflower.
