Oven Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Garlic Spread

Yum
If you have never tried cauliflower sliced thick, this is the way to do it. Paired with garlic and lightly seasoned, these steaks are very satisfying when roasted. I love when simple ingredients come together to make something spectacular like this. I love the way they look, too.

Oven Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Garlic Spread

Ingredients:

1 head of cauliflower
1 head of garlic
1-2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
parsley
thyme
paprika

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Wash and slice the cauliflower  into 1/2 inch - 3/4 inch thick slices. The ends are hard to keep together, so expect to only get 2 or 3 steaks from the head of cauliflower. I made some smaller steaks out of the outside pieces and used the remaining loose florets in another dish.

Cut off the top of the head of garlic. Put the garlic and cauliflower on a baking sheet and drizzle the cut side of the garlic with olive oil, as well as both sides of each slice of cauliflower. Rub the cauliflower with your hands to distribute the olive oil evenly.

Next, sprinkle everything with a little salt and pepper, and add a dash each of parsley, thyme and paprika. Then, wrap the garlic in a square of tin foil, and put everything in the oven for 30 minutes, flipping the cauliflower after the first 15 minutes. When the cauliflower is done, check the garlic at the 30 minute mark. If the garlic is not golden brown and soft, put it back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes until it is very soft and easy to spread.

Serve the cauliflower steaks with a little of the roasted garlic smeared on them.
