1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for tossing
4 shallots, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon minced white anchovy
1 teaspoon chilli flakes
1 teaspoon toasted cumin seeds
Juice and zest of 1 orange
1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
2 tablespoons capers, rinsed if salt-packed
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Toss the cauliflower florets with a little bit of olive oil and salt. Spread them out on a sheet tray, place in the oven, and roast until lightly golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine the shallot, garlic and a pinch of salt.

Add the honey, anchovy, chilli flakes, cumin and the orange juice and zest. Whisk to combine, then whisk in the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil. Add the cauliflower, pine nuts and capers and toss to combine. Fold in the parsley and serve.
