Roasted Cauliflower & Baby Greens Bulgur Bowls with Brown Butter Vinaigrette & Toasted Hazelnuts
These toppings are tops! Warm, fragrant hazelnuts add a rich crunch—all they need is a quick pan-toasting—and dried cranberries, well, we think of them as nature’s candy. For the rest, you’ll build these bowls of plenty on a foundation of fluffy bulgur seasoned with a lively herb blend, layered with tender roasted cauliflower and soft baby green leaves. The vinaigrette, made with foaming brown butter and apple cider vinegar, is pure opulence.
- 300g Cauliflower
- 60g Baby greens (lettuce mix, baby spinach, kale or arugula)
- 1 Shallot (or onion)
- 30ml Apple cider vinegar
- 78g Large-flaked bulgur
- 25g Hazelnuts
- 56g Dried cranberries
- 8g From Paris to Pskov spices (onion, salt, paprika, garlic, sugar, thyme, parsley, rosemary, green bell pepper, mustard, cumin, cayenne pepper, sunflower oil, bay leaf)
Roast the cauliflower: Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve the cauliflower florets (if large). On a lined sheet pan, toss the cauliflower with a generous drizzle of olive oil; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, 14 to 16 minutes, until nicely browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and set aside in a warm spot.
Cook the bulgur: While the cauliflower roasts, in a medium pot, combine the bulgur, 1 ⅓ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 6 to 8 minutes, until the bulgur is tender and the water has been absorbed. Fluff the cooked bulgur with a fork and set aside in a warm spot.
Toast the hazelnuts: While the bulgur cooks, heat a medium, dry pan on medium. Add the hazelnuts and toast, tossing occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, until fragrant and lightly browned. Transfer to a cutting board and reserve the pan. When the hazelnuts are cool enough to handle, roughly chop.
Make the vinaigrette: Peel, halve and mince the shallot. Roughly chop ⅓ of the cranberries. In the reserved pan, heat 3 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium. Cook, swirling the pan often, until the butter foams and turns golden brown (be careful not to overcook, as the butter can burn easily). Off the heat, add the shallot, chopped cranberries, apple cider vinegar and 1 tbsp water (double for 4 portions). Stir well to combine and season with S&P.
Finish & serve: To the pot of bulgur, add a generous drizzle of olive oil and the remaining spice blend; stir to combine. Divide the finished bulgur between your bowls. Top with the baby greens, roasted cauliflower, toasted hazelnuts and remaining cranberries. Mix the vinaigrette well and drizzle a generous amount over your bowls. Serve any remaining vinaigrette on the side. Bon appétit!
Today’s Goodfood recipe was easy to make (as per usual) and the flavour was AMAZING! The vinaigrette alone is reason enough to order this recipe again. My husband loved the meal so much he ended up eating most of my portion (in addition to his). I also really loved the roasted cauliflower and had to stop myself from eating it right out of the oven. This one would definitely get a 10 out of 10!
