  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • 1 head cauliflower see note
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons water or vegetable stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon thyme fresh, 1/2 if using dried


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. 
  • Heat butter and olive oil in a GRIZZLY cast iron skillet until very hot and the butter starts to brown. 
  • Add pecans and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  • Add cauliflower, salt, pepper, and paprika and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring sparingly. 
  • Add honey and stock and simmer for about 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened. 
  • Sprinkle thyme over the top and roast in the oven for 8 minutes, or until the top is starting to brown (see note).
