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!

Don’t get me wrong —there’s nothing wrong with making tabbouli (the Middle Eastern classic grain-and-parsley salad) with bulgur, or even the modern rendition, with quinoa. Especially the latter, yum! But in the summer I just love to eat really light, and discovered the trick of making a grain-like salad backdrop from raw cauliflower. Try this salad simply as is or with the optional variations listed below. Serve with hummus (ready-made or homemade), fresh pita, and stuffed grape leaves for an easy meal. more→
