Change Servings
Ingredients
  • 1 cauliflower head, about 2 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small lemon (juice and zest)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • salt, for steaming water
Directions
  • Trim cauliflower: remove leaves and leaf stalks. Turn head over and trim out the center of the core, but not so much that the florets fall apart.
  • Heat about 2 inches salted water in the bottom of a steamer. Put whole head in the steamer basket and cook just until a sharp knife can pierce it with a slight resistance, 10-20 minutes, depending on the size of the head. Don't overcook; it will continue to cook from residual heat.
  • While the cauliflower cooks, heat butter in a small saucepan until it just begins to brown. This will not take very long--watch closely so it doesn't burn. Zest the lemon, then cut in half and squeeze out the juice. Add to browned butter. Chop parsley and add to butter.
  • When the cauliflower is done, remove to serving dish and spoon sauce over. Slice into quarters to serve.

Set temperature control to high ( 5 to 6 hours cooking time) or low (10 to 12 hours cooking time).
