  • 1 Head of Cauliflower cut into large florets
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • salt pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika


  • Place the cauliflower in a heavy Gauge frying pan , that has a tight fitting lid (I sometimes use a cookie sheet as a lid). Drizzle oil, salt + pepper over cauliflower, cover and cook over a fairly low flame. Enough moisture should come out of the cauliflower to help in the cooking process , prevent burning and allowing it to steam . Turn the cauliflower occasionally, allowing it to brown a little ( you should hear it crackle a little? . While the cauliflower is still A la Dante remove the lid ,continue cooking to remove the moisture and finish the browning. When done sprinkle with smoked paprika.
