This whole roasted cauliflower makes for a stunning and delicious centerpiece for your Saint Patricks Day meal. Here’s  how to make it:


1 whole cauliflower head (Green for Saint Patty’s day if you can find one)

Salt and Pepper

Olive oil

4 ounces cream cheese, softened at room temperature

2 Tbsp milk or heavy cream 

2-3 Tbsp MOB Peruvian Verde 

Chopped cilantro


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Trim and remove the outer stem and hard leaves of the cauliflower. 
  3. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Place whole head of cauliflower in the pot and boil for 7-10 minutes. Remove and shake off excess water. 
  4. Place the cauliflower head onto a sheet tray and and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle generously with olive oil to coat the entire outside of the florets.
