Cutting a head of cauliflower into thicky cut steaks turns the simple vegetable into an impressive-looking vegetarian main course. Though it makes a great entree, it would be just as lovely served as a side dish alongside chicken or lamb kebabs. Cauliflower is one of those vegetables that loves to be doused with just about every seasoning there is, and za’atar, a middle eastern spice blend made with herbs, sumac, and sesame seeds, doesn’t disappoint. Take care when turning the steaks over to be sure to keep the florets intact.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Cauliflower
