Cauliflower Marinara

All children love pizza! These Cauliflower Steaks with Marinara are like a light and tasty take on pizza that I found on the cooktoria web site. Always allow the children to help you prepare the foods you cook for them. My Nanny Kids love spreading the marinara sauce and sprinkling the cheese onto the cauliflower steaks. In this recipe, thick slices of cauliflower are baked so they’re tender, but still a little crisp. Then they’re covered with your favorite marinara sauce and blend of cheeses and baked until the cheese is browned and delicious.

You Will Need:

1 Large Cauliflower or 2 Small Cauliflowers
3 tbsp. Olive Oil
Little Salt to Taste
Little Pepper to Taste
¾ cup Marinara Sauce
1 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese

What to Do:

1. Remove the cauliflower stems and leaves. Cut each cauliflower head down the middle. Then, move the knife about 1 ½ – 2 inches to the left, and cut the steak. Do the same on the right: Reserve the remaining cauliflower for future use.

2. Place the steaks onto a baking tray and brush them with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Then bake these steaks at 425°F for about 30-35 minutes, flipping them halfway.

3. Remove the steaks from the oven and spread marinara over them (you’ll need about three tablespoons per steak). Add the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese on top.

4. Broil for 4-5 minutes, just until the cheese melts and brown spots appear. Remove the cauliflower steaks from the oven and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Serve hot.
