Cauliflower Steaks with Olives & Tomatoes

Yet another way to eat the versatile cauliflower!  I’m serving cauliflower steaks for supper. The cauliflower is cut into four large slices and roasted. Then served with a tomato sauce and olive relish on the side. It can be a great supper dish or perhaps a starter? 


It can be served warm or at room temperature.  I munched it once it came out of the oven so cannot comment on the room temperature taste…and doubt it would last long enough to cool down in my house.  There is something about the smell of roasted cauliflower that I adore!  And the taste is just gorgeous.

    Is there anything cauliflower can’t do! I just made cauliflower tortilla chips for nachos and they turned out really well.
