Roasted Cauliflower Steaks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large-ish head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 Meyer lemon , sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
Meyer Lemon Relish
  • 1 Meyer lemon , minced (peel and all)
  • 1/4 cup minced parsley
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Trim the very base of the cauliflower, leaving stem intact. Trim any leaves as well. Using a long, sharp chef’s knife, cut cauliflower into 1/2-inch thick slices.

  3. Drizzle a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. Set cauliflower slices in oil, and carefully turn to coat. Sprinkle each side with sea salt and pepper. Toss in Meyer lemon slices.
  4. Roast 20 minutes. Use a large spatula to turn cauliflower steaks, and then roast another 10 - 15 minutes, or until cauliflower is tender and edges have browned nicely.

  5. Meanwhile, make Meyer lemon relish by using a fork to combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl.
  6. Toss warm cauliflower with relish and serve. As is, this is a great side or light lunch. Add a little goat cheese or crusty bread for something main dish-worthy.
