I don't know if you read the January issue of Bon Appetite, but it. was. amazing. It wasn't just overflowing with fantastic recipes and gorgeous pictures (per usual), but a solid 90% of those recipes were insanely healthy. At first I was completely overwhelmed with the decision of what to make first, and then I saw this recipe. I was sold. Granted, using a caramelized cauliflower steak in place of a regular steak isn't exactly a fair trade, but when you think of it in the context of "yummy food" rather than "meat substitute"it is absolutely delicious.
I'll be honest this recipe is a bit of work since you're making a total of three dishes. I don't know if it was the beer I was drinking while cooking, or my inability to concentrate on the conversation at hand as well as read the recipe, but there was a moment I thought to myself, "There is absolutely NO way you can blog this, you're going nuts!!" But then................
.....then I tried it. Each of the components by themselves may seem a bit boring, but together they are aaaahhhhhmazing. This dish perfectly harmonizes the sweet and savory of the relish with the light creaminess of the tomato sauce, and then completely surprises you with texture contrast between the raw and caramelized cauliflower. You absolutely MUST try it.
Bonus, it's heavy on the veggies, light on the calories, AND it's another great use for your Immersion Blender!
