3 pitfalls that are stopping you from Creating Healthy Habits that last

Cauliflower Steaks w/ Chimichurri Sauce

Cauliflower is such a fun vegetable because it can be morphed into so many different recipes in the kitchen. This week, we’re bringing you these savory Cauliflower Steaks paired with a Chimichurri Sauce recipe! You’ll obsess over this one.

Cauliflower Steaks With Chimichurri SauceAs we mentioned before, cauliflower is super versatile, which makes it an excellent kitchen staple. It can be used as rice or couscous, pizza crust, and many other creative options. It is best in season during the summer months, but you can always find it in your supermarket.  We especially like it because it is a fairly bland vegetable that pairs wonderfully with other delicious flavors and sauces (i.e. our chimichurri sauce). Not to mention, cauliflower provides a hefty dose of vitamin C! 

Cauliflower Steaks With Chimichurri Sauce

Let’s get started! Kick that oven up to 400F. Start by trimming the leaves from the cauliflower and slice the cauliflower through the center. Then cut each half into 1″ thick “steak” slices. You should have 3-4 steak slices for each half, for a total of 6-8 steaks. Line a baking sheet with the steak slices and set aside. Note that there may be some cauliflower florets that fall apart as you cut the steaks. Don’t throw those away! Add them to the baking sheet too, and enjoy with the sauce. 

Okay, let’s keep it moving. In a bowl, combine the rice vinegar, olive oil, and maple syrup. Mix with a spoon and drizzle onto the cauliflower steaks. Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Flip the steaks, and bake for another 25 minutes. While the cauliflower is baking, let’s move on to our chimichurri sauce. Add all of the ingredients for the sauce (except the salt) into a blender or food processor. Blend until consistent, and add salt to taste. Once the cauliflower is ready, enjoy with 1 tablespoon of the chimichurri sauce per steak. Store the rest of the sauce and any leftover cauliflower for up to 1 week!

    We usually eat common cooked foods. But when some delicious food is possible to make, then it will add a variety in the food recipe and make the people at home more mindful to eat food items. Lot of thanks.
