To make your own Truffled Whole Roasted Cauliflower, you will need: one head cauliflower (leaves and stalk removed and rinsed), 12 cups water plus 2 teaspoons Better Than Bouillon Vegetable Base (or 12 cups vegetable stock), 1 teaspoon dried thyme, 2 bay leaves, 1/3 cup butter (melted), and 1/2 teaspoon truffle salt.

Preheat your oven to 400°F. In a large stockpot, place your cauliflower and vegetable stock. Add the thyme and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Reserve about 1/2 cup of the stock, drain the cauliflower and place it in an oven-proof skillet. I used my cast iron for this recipe. Pour the reserved stock over the cauliflower followed by the melted butter. Sprinkle a little more thyme over the top if desired. Place the skillet in the oven and roast the cauliflower for 15 minutes. Every 5 minutes, spoon some of the stock/butter over the top of the cauliflower. When the 15 minutes are up, crank the heat up to 500°F and broil the cauliflower for 2 minutes. Remove from the oven, spoon some of the liquid over the top once again, and season with the truffle salt. Cut into wedges and serve immediately. This Truffled Whole Roasted Cauliflower was amazing with pork chops. Enjoy!
