Creamed Cauliflower with Pine Nuts and Bacon
Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 6-8
  • 1 head cauliflower, broken into small florets
  • 2-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced rosemary
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup heavy cream, more or less to taste
  • ½ cup toasted pine nuts
  • 4 slices bacon, fried until crispy, drained, and crumbled
  1. Toss cauliflower florets with olive oil and rosemary and spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and roast at 375 degrees until tender and browned on the edges, about 40 minutes.
  2. Place roasted cauliflower in the bowl of a food processor and with blade running add the heavy cream. If you want a chunkier consistency, add less cream. If you want a creamier consistency, add more cream. Spoon creamed cauliflower into a bowl and stir in pine nuts and bacon. Serve warm.
