Cauliflower Piccata


1 cauliflower head, cut into large 2-inch florets
4 Tbsp Pastene Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
½ tsp kosher salt plus more to taste
black pepper to taste
1 14 oz can Pastene Chickpeas, drained
1 shallot, finely diced
4 tsp Pastene Minced Garlic
1 cup vegetable stock
4 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp Pastene Capers, drained
zest of 1 lemon
2 Tbsp lemon juice
parsley, chopped, for garnish
1 lemon, sliced, for serving


  • Heat the oven to 425°F. Place the cauliflower florets onto a sheet pan and drizzle with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with kosher salt and black pepper, and roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until the cauliflower is golden and tender. Remove from the oven, add the chickpeas and toss to combine.
  • Heat a medium skillet to medium-high. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the shallot, and sauté until soft and fragrant, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute longer, stirring constantly to keep from scorching. Pour the stock into the pan and simmer until reduced by half, about 4 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, then stir in the butter, capers, lemon zest and juice. Season with kosher salt and a few turns of black pepper.
  • To serve, place the cauliflower and chickpeas on serving plates. Top with the lemon-caper sauce. Top with parsley and serve with lemon slices.
