Low-Sodium Cauliflower Steaks

So let’s say you’re having a big group over for dinner and you plan on making this:

But we’ll get back to the beef another time.

Because, let’s say that you or one of your guests could not eat the meat you see above.

What do you do?

The answer is cauliflower steaks. Yes, a hearty main made from a small head of cauliflower that is chopped into thirds to create slabs of non-meat steakery.

Trust me, vegetarians,vegans, and those watching their sodium and protein intake will appreciate the creativity.

They will also appreciate the smokey seasoning that you rub on it (I went with Penzey’s Chili 3000 and some cumin). As well as the quick sear you give them in a hot, slightly oiled pan (about 8 minutes per side).

And no doubt they’ll appreciate accoutrements like Red Bell Pepper and Ancho Chili Jam (care of Earth and Vine) and pickled fennel (care of vinegar).

And that’s how you make a steak from a vegetable.

Chow on.

That looks good enough to eat, even for a meat eater!!

Oh my word. I am drooling. That looks fantastic!

What an interesting idea. I love cauliflower, so I will definitely have to give this a shot!
