Cauliflower Steaks with Pesto
When you want to sink your teeth into a steak — but you’re looking for something a little different — try these cheesy cauliflower steaks. They are certainly simple, but oh-so hearty and down-right delicious, too. They're made even quicker by using store-bought pesto.
Preheat oven to 425° with a baking sheet on rack in lowest position.
Trim cauliflower leaves and stem, leaving core intact. Using a large knife, cut cauliflower vertically into four ¾-inch-thick steaks.
Brush one side of steaks with 2 Tbsp. oil, sprinkle with 1½ tsp. oregano, and season with salt and pepper.
Carefully remove hot baking sheet from oven; add steaks oiled sides down. Brush steaks with remaining 2 Tbsp. oil and sprinkle with remaining 11/2 tsp. oregano; season with salt and pepper.
Brush steaks with pesto and top with mozzarella; roast until cheese melts and edges of steaks begin to brown, 3 minutes.
