Last week, I talked about posting simple easy recipes that fall more in line with my blog’s name, Young, Broke and Hungry. Not all of the recipes will be meatless, but a majority of them will, because let me be frank here, vegetables are way cheaper than skinless boneless chicken breast. Plus, handling raw poultry makes me squeamish.
These Cauliflower Steaks with Cilantro Garlic Sauce can either be a side dish or a main entrée. It really depends on you and your appetite. I like to serve it with roasted carrots and chickpeas over rice.
The garlic cilantro sauce is reminiscent of chimichurri sauce without the red onion. However, it comes together just as quickly and gives a bright fresh note to the dish. I like to make extra, because it tastes good drizzled over just about anything.
These Cauliflower Steaks with Cilantro Garlic Sauce is a healthy 15 minute meal that comes together in a snap. Enjoy!
