Cauliflower is on of those incredible foods that can do anything – make it into rice, a pizza crust, or an essential addition to a curry or pasta. However, it also does quite well standing on its own as an entree and these cauliflower steaks highlight the vegetable's star power. The simple, roasted cauliflower is augmented by a creamy dill and lemon sauce and served on a bed of rice.
