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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • 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.

This turned out good and I loved the addition of kale chips. As a matter of fact I munched on the leftover kale and loved it so much that I plan to play around with different flavors and make just the chips again soon. I did not feel the orange added anything to the dish but that is just my opinion. Read More
