Meatless Dinner: Roasted Cauliflower Steaks With Grainy Mustard Sauce
1 Large cauliflower head, leaves removed
4 tablespoons Olive oil
Kosher salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons Shallots or onion, minced
2 tablespoons capers
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
1 Juice and zest of orange
1 cup Parsley
1 cup Large breadcrumbs, toasted

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Cut the cauliflower into 4, 2-inch thick steaks, leaving the core intact. Brush both sides of the cauliflower with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on a sheet pan and place into the oven. Cook for 14-16 minutes, flipping the cauliflower halfway through the cooking. The cauliflower should be tender and nicely caramelized on each side.

Place the shallots, capers, mustard, zest and juice into a medium mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper and then slowly whisk in the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil. Add in the parsley and breadcrumbs.

Remove the cauliflower from the oven and place 1 or 2 "steaks" on each plate depending on size. Top with the parsley-caper sauce and serve.

If you want to try a meatless meal or thinking about switching to plant-based protein altogether, this is the perfect recipe for you. These roasted cauliflower steaks pack in the nutriion without sacrificing flavor.
