Roasted Cauliflower Steak

I assume we are all familiar with the Cauliflower Buffalo Wings, right? Well, next to that popular cauliflower dish, this oven-roasted cauliflower steak is my favorite. It’s so hearty and flavorful. Plus, it’s extremely easy to make; just cut, season and roast.

How to cut cauliflower

The trick to cutting cauliflower into thick slices is to leave the stem intact. Just remove the leaves and do NOT cut the stem off. Slice directly through the stem. I usually get 3 or 4 slices from one head of cauliflower. Some end pieces will inevitably fall off, but that’s okay. You can still cook them and get tasty roasted cauliflower florets.
