Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

Recipe by  

"You might've tried boiling, mashing, and even turning cauliflower into 'rice'. For a different take on cauliflower, try these oven-roasted cauliflower steaks seasoned with a simple lemon-garlic sauce. Serve the steaks with chimichurri sauce or topped with roasted cherry tomatoes, sliced green olives and crumbled feta cheese."

As a lover of roasted cauliflower this not only presents well, the flavors are spot on. I used Meyer lemon infused olive oil.

Not bad but seemed to need something; I'm not sure what. Flavor was lacking. Also the steaks were a little mushy. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I might try this again and next time add more spices, maybe some curry powder? It's a good idea but IMO it needs some work.

This was the first time I have ever cooked cauliflower. I am happy with the results. The only things I changed were to omit the red pepper flakes and use bottled garlic instead of fresh. I was only able to get two intact "steaks" out of my cauliflower, so if you are planning to serve each person a whole steak, you might want to pick up more than one head at the market.

Loved the garlic & lemon together. Delicious and oh so easy!

Quite good. A little too much lemon but that's just personal preference. This presents very well, particularly with the roasted cherry tomatoes as per the submitter's suggestion. I will definitely make this again.

I made this exactly as the recipe said. I think the picture showed red and yellow peppers julienned and roasted too. I didn't have luck with the steaks either, so I just followed the directions but with Florets. A great substitute for pasta and potatoes. It tasted great!! Hubby loved it, too!!

This is a wonderful recipe. I often end up letting cauliflower go to waste because I don't get around to cooking it...mainly because it just never seems appetizing when I am looking in the fridge for "what's for dinner" -- but that won't happen again with this great recipe -- it is extremely easy and extremely delicious!!
