- Steam Cauliflower on ‘high’ in instapot for 1 minute. Quick release. Whisk remaining ingredients together to make a glaze. Rub glaze on cauliflower.
- Air fry @390°F 30-40min rotating for browning each side at 25,30,35min., etc. Or, bake at 425°F checking at 5-min intervals starting at 20 min. The part touching the bottom always seems to brown. I highly recommend using parchment or a silicon liner.
SteamingYou can also steam until tender-crisp or boil for about 6 minutes, but if you boil it the smell of boiled cauliflower will spread to your nearest neighbors.
SmokeThis is great without liquid smoke or with it. The real power is in the caramelized shell bits. I used no liquid smoke, and then I used hickory liquid smoke by Figaro which was nice. I think pecan liquid smoke or apple liquid smoke would be stellar as well, perhaps even better! I wanted the extra ‘bite’ of hickory.

Maple-Mustard Cauliflower, After Roasting
This recipe is inspired by my experiences in Northern New England. The competitive nature of being known for the best maple syrup between Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and … Canada. For the record, New Hampshire’s is the best. Runner up awards go to: Vermont for being the loudest about maple syrup, Maine for the maple syrup you make at home, and Canada for being awesome.
