Take-out Tuesday, Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Killer Mushroom Cream Sauce

Okay, so…


It is AMAZING!!!

And believe it or not, it is REALLY REALLY EASY!

Trim the stem and leaves off of a head of cauliflower and cut into thick slices, or “steaks”

Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt & pepper

Roast for 30-40 minutes, turning once

Remove from oven when golden and beginning to char

Start the sauce by sauteing onions in olive oil over medium heat until soft and golden

Turn heat up to medium high and add butter and mushrooms

By using medium high heat, the mushrooms will saute and turn golden fairly quickly,

watch them closely, and give them an occasional stir

Now hit them with a little cream

Now add cheese

I used blue cheese, but you can use Gruyère

When sauce has reduced a little and thickened remove from heat

Garnish with parsley

Place cauliflower steak on a plate, top with sauce

Garnish with crispy bacon pieces

This is extremely satisfying, you won’t even miss the meat!

This sauce would be wonderful on steak, potatoes, pasta

green beans, hamburgers, chicken,

Just about anything!

Servings 2 main dish


  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 8 oz sliced Baby Bella mushrooms
  • olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 onion diced {white, yellow, red or sweet}
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 oz. crumbled blue cheese Gorgonzola cheese or grated Gruyère cheese
  • salt & pepper
  • 3 slices crispy bacon cooked and crumbled
  • chopped parsley


  • Trim stem off cauliflower and remove green leaves. Cut cauliflower into 4 1 inch slices, starting in the middle to get the largest slices. Save remaining cauliflower for another use {raw cauliflower is great in salads}.
  • Place cauliflower on parchment or foil lined sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Turn slices over and return to oven for 10-20 more minutes, until cauliflower is soft, golden and beginning to char. Keep warm until ready to serve.
  • Fifteen minutes before cauliflower is done, make sauce.
  • Place onion into large skillet with olive oil and cook over medium heat until soft and golden, 5-8 minutes. Turn heat to medium high. Add butter and mushrooms, stir to coat mushrooms in butter then let cook for several minutes without stirring. Now stir mushrooms and let cook another few minutes, until they are golden on both sides. Turn down heat to medium low. Drizzle in about 1/4 cup cream, stir and add more cream if you need more liquid. Sauce should bubble up quickly. Stir in cheese until melted and remove from heat.
  • Place cauliflower steaks on plates, divide sauce over steaks, and garnish with bacon and parsley. Serve immediately.


substitute chicken broth, white wine, cooking sherry for cream if desired, adjust amount as necessary to keep the sauce from becoming too runny
