Roasted Cauliflower & Caramelized Onion Sauce

Cauliflower is a very healthy ingredient, because it contains a lot of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Moreover cooking with cauliflower is easy, since the ingredient is also very versatile. For example, you can add it to a curry, to a cheesy sauce or maybe even fry the cauliflower itself. In this recipe, I roasted the cauliflower because this enhances the nutty flavor. The creamy puree, toasted cauliflower and the crispy nuts and capers are a great combination!

Roasted Cauliflower & Caramelized Onion Sauce

Servings 4 servings
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes


  • Oven
  • Cooking pan
  • Blender


  • 1 Cauliflower
  • 1000 gram Potatoes
  • 50 gram Butter
  • 100 ml Milk
  • Nutmeg
  • Almond Chips
  • Capers
  • 2 Onions
  • 50 gram Butter
  • 2 Gloves Garlic
  • 200 ml Stock
  • 200 ml Cream


  • Preheat the oven on 160 degrees Celsius or 320 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Peel the potatoes, cut them in half and cook for about 25 minutes.
  • Divide the cauliflower in four 'steaks'. Cover the cauliflower with some seasoning and olive oil. Place on a baking tray and roast for about 30-40 minutes.
  • Cut the onions and garlic in slices and bake in the 50 grams of butter on a medium heat. When the onions are brown and caramelized, add the stock and let it cook for 5 minutes. Then add the cream. Blend the sauce until smooth. Pour through a fine sieve to make sure all the lumps are removed.
  • Make a puree of the potatoes by mashing the potatoes with the milk, butter, salt and pepper and a pinch of nutmeg. Keep warm in the cooking pan.
  • Toast the almond chips in a baking pan (or the last 5 minutes in the oven with the cauliflower).
  • Heat some sunflower oil or olive oil in a pan and bake the capers crispy.
  • Serve the cauliflower on top of some potato puree with the sauce, almonds and capers.
