There is something quite wonderful about a hearty vegetable side dish that has been caramelized and roasted in the oven. It is the rich combination of the nutty scent mixed with a touch of sweetness.

Cauliflower is quite popular these days as more and more people use it as a low-carb replacement for mashed potatoes, steamed rice, and even pizza. It is versatile and satisfying.  In fact, I cannot remember the last time I have consumed mashed potatoes since discovering mashed cauliflower. All it takes is looking at an everyday ingredient in a new light.

This roasted cauliflower steak recipe is a subtle twist to the usual way of roasting cauliflower. Instead of trimming the florets, slice the head of cauliflower from tip to stem in quarter-of-an-inch thickness. And like any good “steak,” you’ll want to top it with a sauce that brings out the flavor. I recommend coating this creamy balsamic dressing on the steaks immediately after removing the oven so that it soaks in all the goodness.
