This is another vegetarian option. Leave out the cheese and it's vegan. Serve with steamed brown rice and beans. Colby cheese can be substituted for the Havarti cheese.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook cauliflower 'steaks' in the hot oil until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add florets and water to skillet; cover and steam until cauliflower is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a separate skillet over medium heat; saute onion until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and saute until onion is lightly browned and mushrooms are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Arrange cauliflower 'steaks' and florets on a baking sheet; top with onion-mushroom mixture and Havarti cheese.

  • Broil in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bubbling, 2 to 3 minutes.

This was delicious! I have to admit that I changed it by using cheddar cheese, but the texture was also really wonderful. One thing I noticed was that I needed to use waaayyy more water than the half cup suggested (the cauliflower kept burning). Great recipe though, and something I will definitely put in heavy rotation.

I made the mistake of using a very large head. Medium size would work much better. Very tasty and easy too make. My husband went back for seconds and was glad we had more left over! I didn't have havarti cheese so used Swiss. I suspect it would have been better with havarti or at least different. I like the ease of preparation and flavor! Read More

This is an excellent recipe. I used mozzarella and parmesan since thats what I had. I spiced it with Lowry's Seasoning Salt and Old Bay mixed in with the onion mushroom and leftover florets. My wife was absolutely blown away. 5 stars. Read More

It turned out very good. Mushrooms are one of my favorites. When I make it again I m going to add walnuts and or pecans. That should add some protein to the dish and some crunch. Read More
