Inspired by the "Cauliflower steaks" recipe from a Bon Apetit magazine, tonight we seared Cauliflower on a cast iron griddle, essentially Cauliflower a la Plancha. Preheat oven to 400f. Slice a head of Cauliflower into 1/2 inch "steaks". Then heat up a griddle, spread some olive oil on it, heat until it sizzles water and place the cauliflower steaks on it. Salt and pepper them and sear about 2 minutes each side until slightly browned. Then put the whole thing into the oven and roast about 10-12 minutes to taste. Delicious! We served it with an olive-truffle-almond butter, but you could easily grace it with a lemon sauce or a marinara sauce, or something involving mushrooms and cream.
