How to make cauliflower steaks
This is a simple low carb cauliflower recipe to make. The cauliflower is cut into four large slices and roasted in an extremely hot oven, which allows it to be steamed and browned .
How to cut cauliflower steaks
- Cut off the inedible leaves.
- Trim off the bottom of the cauliflower stem but make sure to keep the core intact.
- Cut right through the middle of the cauliflower head, this keeps the florets together.
- Cut thick slices, about 1 1/2-inch thick to have a heartier bite and stay intact in high heat.
- Save the excess florets that do not connect to the steaks for other cauliflower recipes.
When you cut the cauliflower into slices, bits of the cauliflower may crumble. Set these aside to make cauliflower pizza bites.
Serve warm or at room temperature. Delicious either way.
Use roasted red peppers if you don't have tomatoes.
