Dear SOS: I’m not a fan of cauliflower, but on a recent trip to Napa I dined at Ad Hoc and had the most amazing side dish of rice with roasted cauliflower. I would love the recipe.

Dear Sainam: This deceptively simple dish contains a wealth of layered flavors. Roasting the cauliflower concentrates the vegetable’s flavor while softening it to buttery tenderness, the rich caramelization complemented with a sprinkling of earthy curry powder. Tossed with rice spiced with a pinch of chili flakes, the dish is finished with bright crunch from fresh green onion. A perfect harmony in every mouthful.
