Steak for Dinner: Cauliflower Steaks with Red Pepper Caramelized Onion Relish

Cauliflower Steaks

Next time you’re looking to serve up a hearty dinner for you and your friends, carve up a head of cauliflower to make these scrumptious cauliflower steaks. Each head of cauliflower makes 4 steaks. Play around with all your favorite sauces, reductions and puree’s but this roasted red pepper and caramelized onion relish is my current favorite.
