Calimyrna figs have a delicate, nutty flavor which pairs wonderfully with mild cauliflower and tangy lemon.


  • 2 heads cauliflower
  • 12 dried California Calimyrna figs
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 fresh lemons, sliced


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Remove and discard outer leaves and thick stem from cauliflower; divide, vertically, into quarters.
  • Then, with each quarter laying flat on the cut side, cut into 1/4-inch slices. Remove stems from figs and cut, lengthwise into eighths.
  • In mixing bowl, combine minced garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper; mix well.
  • Add sliced cauliflower, figs, and lemon slices; toss to coat lightly. Transfer mixture to large oven proof casserole and spread evenly in a shallow layer.
  • Roast at 400°F until cauliflower is lightly browned and tender, about 30 minutes, or roast about 20 minutes and finish under the broiler.
