Cooking Instructions

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Brush a baking sheet with olive oil or line with parchment paper.
Step 2
To prep the Cauliflower steaks, remove and discard the leaves and cut the Cauliflower (1/2 head) into 1-inch thick slices. (You can also roast the extra crumbles that fall off the steaks)
Step 3
Place the cauliflower steaks on the baking sheet and brush them with Olive Oil (to taste) . You want the surface just lightly coated. Season with Sea Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) .
Step 4
Roast the cauliflower steaks for 15-20 minutes, until the tops are browned and the edges are crispy. Check the Cauliflower halfway through and rotate your pan to ensure that all of the steaks are cooked evenly.
Step 5
Meanwhile, put the Fresh Basil Leaves (2 cups) , Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup) , Almonds (1/4 cup) , and Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) in a food processor or blender, and season with Sea Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) . Blend until you have a thick, finely chopped pasted.
Step 6
Spread a generous amount of pesto on top of each cauliflower steak, and top with Mozzarella Cheese (1/2 cup) .
Step 7
Return to the oven and bake until the cheese melts and begins to bubble, 2-3 minutes. If you want crispy cheese, turn on the broiler for 1-2 minutes.
Step 8
Serve the cauliflower steaks immediately with sides or main dish of choice.
