Roasted Cauliflower with Mojo Sauce
“For this healthy cauliflower recipe, roasted florets are tossed in mojo, a Latin sauce that's gently spicy but can complement almost any other dish in your meal. If you can't find Cotija cheese, use another salty, crumbly cheese, such as feta.”
½ cup garlic cloves
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons chopped tomato
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons minced chipotle in adobo
¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
10 cups cauliflower florets (from 2 large heads)
¼ cup crumbled Cotija cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1Preheat oven to 450°F.
2Place garlic, 4½ tablespoons oil and butter in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer, cover and cook until the garlic is very soft, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender. Add tomato, orange juice, chipotle and ½ teaspoon salt. Puree until smooth.
3Meanwhile, toss cauliflower in a large bowl with the remaining 1½ tablespoons oil and ¼ teaspoon salt. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast, stirring once, until browned on the bottom, about 20 minutes.
4Toss the cauliflower with the sauce and top with cheese and cilantro.
To make ahead: Refrigerate sauce (Step 2) for up to 1 day.
