  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • 2 green onions
  • salt & freshly ground pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Using sharp chef's knife, trim leaves from bottom of cauliflower and cut 1-inch off bottom of stem.
  3. Place cauliflower on cutting board stem side down and cut cauliflower in half down the middle, through stem. Take one half cauliflower and cut into two thick slices. Repeat with other half of cauliflower. You should have 4 slabs, or “steaks”, of cauliflower.
  4. Place cauliflower steaks, cut side down on baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  7. To serve, gently transfer roasted cauliflower steaks to serving plate and spoon Verde Chimichurri over top.
