Test Kitchen Tip
Purple cauliflower gets its color naturally from the antioxidant anthocyanin, but still has the mild, sweet, nutty flavor of white.
Preheat oven to 450°.
Parboil potatoes in a pot of boiling salted water, 5 minutes; drain.
Toss potatoes with 1 tsp. oil in a bowl. Toss cauliflower and leeks in a separate bowl with 2 tsp oil.
Heat remaining 3 tsp. oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high. Add filets and potatoes to skillet. Sear filets, about 4 minutes; flip filets and stir potatoes.
Add cauliflower mixture to skillet, transfer to oven, and roast until a thermometer inserted into centers of filets registers 135° for mediumrare, 5–9 minutes. Transfer filets to a plate, tent with foil, and let rest 10 minutes.
Melt butter in skillet with vegetable mixture over medium heat. Stir in capers and pepper flakes; cook 1 minute.
Deglaze skillet with sherry, scraping up any brown bits, and cook until nearly evaporated. Off heat, stir in parsley and zest; season with salt and black pepper.
