Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

Roasted cauliflower steaks are my absolute favorite way to eat this sometimes hated veggie.

And it sure is heck of a lot better for you than drowning it with cheese sauce.

Actually, it kinda makes me feel all adult like.

Seriously, if you have been avoiding cauliflower, give this recipe a try and I bet you will fall in love all over again..minus the cheese sauce. Your arteries will thank me later.

Take a peek at how easy it it.


Trim the leaves and stalk off.

Slice into 1″ “steaks”. You may only get 2 whole “steaks” but that’s ok. Just slice the pieces the best you can.

Place on baking sheet

Slice garlic

Add it into a small pan with the EVOO and rosemary. Cook until light golden

With a pastry brush, brush oil over cauliflower and sprinkle with coarse kosher salt and pepper.


Roast and sprinkle with parmesan cheese when done roasting. Add additional salt and pepper to your liking.
