Tips and Recipe FAQ:

How do you cut cauliflower into steaks?

The easiest way to cut cauliflower into steaks is by placing the head of the cauliflower stem down on a cutting board. Use a knife to cut down thick slices.

Someone asked if you should steam cauliflower before roasting it.

Don’t steam your cauliflower. It will prevent it from getting slightly crisp edges, which are so tasty!

How do you prevent mushy cauliflower?

Try not to cut into all of the florets. Keep florets whole, then oil and season from there.

How long will this cauliflower keep fresh?

This cauliflower will keep fresh for up to 4 days in an air-tight container.
