  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.

    Place a whole trimmed and cleaned cauliflower head on a cutting board and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. In a small bowl combine the Italian seasoning, kosher salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Generously drizzle the cauliflower head with the spice blend, taking care to rotate it and cover all sides completely. 
  3. Step 3

    Place the metal trivet into the bottom of the pot insert of an electric pressure cooker. Pour in the water. Place the seasoned cauliflower head on the trivet. Seal the lid and set to manual. Cook on high pressure for 2 minutes. 
  4. Step 4

    Manually release the pressure immediately and transfer the cooked cauliflower to a cutting board. In a medium bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons of olive oil with the red wine vinegar, pine nuts, capers, golden raisins, and chopped parsley. 
  5. Step 5

    Cut the head of cauliflower either into wedges or large, thick steaks. Spoon the prepared topping over the cauliflower. Grate fresh lemon zest over each piece. Serve immediately.
