Cauliflower steak with bean and tomato salad. TNS
By Linda Gassenheimer
Cauliflower steaks are becoming popular. They're easy to prepare and make a great vegetarian dinner. For this easy dinner, just cut a head of cauliflower into 1-inch steaks, add a prepared pesto sauce and let the oven do the rest.
Cannellini beans, cherry tomatoes and arugula make a simple salad side dish. Fresh arugula adds a peppery finish to the salad.
Any type of salad greens can be used instead of the arugula.
Great Northern beans can be used instead of cannellini beans.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Prepare the cauliflower and place in the oven.
While cauliflower roasts, make the salad.
1 medium-size head of cauliflower
Olive oil spray
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup prepared, reduced-fat pesto sauce
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Discard outer leaves of the cauliflower and cut the head in 1-inch slices from the top of the head to the bottom stalk of the cauliflower. Save any florets that fall off or are not part of the slices for another meal or to use as crudite. Spray both sides of the steaks with olive oil spray. Line a baking sheet with foil and add the steaks. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover the baking sheet with foil and place in the oven. Roast 5 minutes. Remove foil and roast until cauliflower is golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. Turn the steaks over and roast 5 minutes or until soft when tested with a knife. Remove to two dinner plates and spoon pesto sauce on top.
