Ingredients

  • 1 bunch kale, stemmed and torn into pieces

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided, or to taste

  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tablespoon ground red chile pepper

  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano

  • salt to taste

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • ¼ cup bread crumbs

  • 1 head cauliflower

  • 1 teaspoon chipotle spice rub, or to taste

  • 1 orange, peeled and cubed

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Spread kale on the baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil on top. Coat with Parmesan cheese, red chile pepper, oregano, and salt.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  4. Heat butter in a small skillet until melted and starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in bread crumbs. Remove from heat.

  5. Slice cauliflower into 1/2-inch "steaks". Rub 1 tablespoon olive oil and chipotle spice rub on top.

  6. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add cauliflower; cook and stir until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to the baking sheet.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, about 15 minutes.

  8. Place cauliflower steaks on a large serving platter; top with crisp kale and orange.

  9. Whisk remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and vinegar together in a small bowl. Drizzle over orange. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top.

Cook's Note:

Add minced shallots and olives with the orange if you like.
