Holiday Cauliflower Roast | Vegan Thanksgiving
This is the perfect roast for any holiday dinner or get together that you may have. Great center piece and conversation starter. "What is that thing in the middle of the table?"one might ask. All you have to do is hand them a slice with some gravy and no one will complain about the lack of meat.
Ingredients 1 large cauliflower head 1/4 tsp ground black pepper 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp onion powder 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning 3 garlic cloves, minced 1/4 cup melted butter 1 tbsp parsley flakes 1 tsp sage 1/2 juice of a lemon 2/3 cup veg broth 1 cup Brown Gravy, (here is my simple recipe) Optional: Some carrots and potatoes, chopped
Instructions Preheat oven to 350F.
Remove leaves from cauliflower head and cut stem carefully so it can sit flat. Place cauliflower in a large roasting pan or oven safe pot.
Mix lemon juice and veg stock together and drizzle over the cauliflower.
Mix the following together in a small mixing bowl, Black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, poultry seasoning, minced garlic, butter, parsley, and sage. Mix until everything becomes a paste and this will serve as our rub.
Rub the rub mix all over the cauliflower as you would with any roast.
(optional) Add chopped carrots and potatoes around the sides of the roast. Cover the roasting pan with a lid or aluminum foil, tightly.
Place into the oven for one hour covered.
After an hour remove the roast from the oven and pour gravy over top. Place roast back into the oven for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving. Have a delicious bite.
TIP: Mix any remaining gravy with roast drippings to use as a serving gravy. Great with mash potatoes or roasted potatoes and carrots with gravy over top.
