How To Slice Cauliflower Steaks For Oven-Roasting

...because who doesn't like a recipe you could serve to just about any dinner guest, no matter their diet? This impressive presentation is easy to create. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Choose the largest cauliflower you can find; they're much easier to cut into steaks.
  2. Remove the outer leaves and trim the stem end.
  3. Hold cauliflower with its base on a cutting board.
  4. With a sharp knife, make one cut through the center of the cauliflower to divide it in half.
  5. Now cut each half into two 3/4-inch thick slices. Save the ends to eat as a snack or serve with salad.
