We all need a go-to recipe that requires 5 minutes of prep work. Of course, we want it to be delicious and easy. But more than that, the ideal go-to is totally satisfying, and has a level of sophistication that makes your guests ooh and ahh.

Serves: 4-6

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup NatureBox Roasted Garlic Pumpkin Seeds, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, minced

Directions:

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add cauliflower head and let cook until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Plunge into ice bath to stop the cooking process. Pat dry with paper towels then season with a few pinches of salt and pepper.

2. In a sauté pan over medium heat, melt butter until it smells slightly nutty, about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic. Add cauliflower, crown side down. While basting with butter, turn the cauliflower every 20-30 seconds until lightly browned all over, about 8-10 minutes. The turning process might look something like this:
