I have posted before about how amazing and versatile cauliflower is. Thanks to it's mild flavor in it's natural state, cauliflower easily takes on the flavor of any seasoning. If you are looking to add some variety to your family's Taco Tuesday, my recipe for Taco Seasoned Cauliflower Steaks with Guacamole is the way to go! Not only will they add variety to your Taco Tuesday menu, but they are an easy and delicious way to get more veggies onto your child's plate!
My recipe for Taco Seasoned Cauliflower Steak with Guacamole calls for just a handful of ingredients – 1 head of cauliflower, olive oil, taco seasoning, Mexican blend cheese, green onions, fresh cilantro, guacamole and salsa. The cauliflower can be cut and prepped faster than it will take your oven to preheat.
The first thing you will need to do is remove some of the stem (but not all) from the cauliflower. You will still want all the florets attached to part of the stem because this will hold steak slices of the cauliflower together. After removing some of the stem, place the cauliflower on your cutting board stem side down. Now slice the cauliflower into steaks about 1 inch thick. Some pieces will fall apart. That is okay. Place all pieces onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Do not overcrowd your pan. Roasted vegetables need space around them for air to flow. If the pan is crowded then the vegetables will not roast and instead will steam.
Next you will brush the cauliflower with olive oil and season with taco seasoning. After the cauliflower has roasted you will add your cheese, green onion and fresh cilantro, bake for 1 more minute to melt the cheese and then serve and enjoy!
