Crispy Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Steaks with Creamy Red Pepper Sauce



If there is one veggie that does it all, it’s cauliflower! 


You can roast it, turn into a sauce, rice, a pizza crust and more. One of my favorite ways to enjoy it, is grilling! Grilling instantly softens it versus the time consuming roasting and you can derive much more flavor with grilling. I find that while many have the prep method down, creating an effortless sauce can be a struggle.

Roasted and grilled veggies are great solo. However, if you can create a fab universal sauce that will complement all veggies and truly elevate the flavor, you have a win win.

When thinking of my favorite go to sauce, my roasted red pepper sauce came to mine. This sauce is quick, easy, packs protein from the cashews, a cheese like flavor, the protein makes the sauce more filling. Combine that protein with the fiber packed cauliflower, and you have a dish that delivers! What’s great about this sauce? Everything. It’s sweet, spicy, and if you’re in a bind for a perfect sauce that pairs with countless dishes, this is it!

Why you need to try this dish? Too many reasons! It’s quick, easy, affordable, perfect for any season, it packs more flavor, is crispy rather than soggy, has a rich garlic and parmesan flavor, has aesthetic appeal, can be served as a side dish or main dish, can be cut into floret, the sauce is sweet yet packs a lil heat, and bonus, the cauliflower can be thrown on other dishes and the sauce can be served on countless dishes, and even turned into a soup!
