Today’s Cauliflower Steak recipe is one of the 21 dinner recipes included in the plan. Between cauliflower crust pizza and mashed cauli-tatoes (recipes coming soon), I’m a little obsessed with cauliflower right now. I love this dish because it’s so simple yet super tasty. I like to serve it with a side of brown rice or steamed broccoli.
