Just when you thought cauliflower couldn’t possibly do more — after all, it can be rice, mashed potatoes, pizza crust and can essentially morph into just about any carbohydrate you can conceive of — voila! Meet cauliflower steaks.
These are not intended to replace your daily dose of protein, nor do they claim to taste like red meat. What they do offer is something more elegant: a delicious, filling dish that doesn’t require you to cut florets, spiralize stems, pulse into grains or otherwise manhandle this cruciferous vegetable. Simply cut the entire head into four even slices, douse with a flavorful herb sauce, and roast until crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
