Cauliflower “Steaks” with Green Pea Purée

Cauliflower Steaks with green pea puree by helyn dunnThis cauliflower recipe makes the most beautiful presentation and it’s a breeze to make. Minimal ingredients … whole foods at their best. I served these with a big, fresh salad. Perfect lunch! The trickiest part to this recipe is slicing the cauliflower, only because you will lose some. It’s mostly the inner slices that will easily retain their structure. The rest just fall apart, so be prepared to have another cauliflower recipe on hand for the leftovers!
