Makes 4 servings
- For the cauliflower:
- 1 head cauliflower, sliced into ⅓-inch "steaks"
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 4 whole garlic cloves
- 4 sprigs thyme, or more as desired
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- For the sauce:
- 1 cup light sour cream
- ¼ cup prepared horseradish

How to make it
Preheat oven to 425°. Toss cauliflower and onion with olive oil, garlic, and thyme. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Lie flat on a large, rimmed baking sheet and roast, tossing occasionally, until the cauliflower is tender, about 40 minutes.
For the sauce: Stir together the sour cream, horseradish, and lemon juice until well-combined. Drizzle over the finished cauliflower or use as a dip.
