Lemon Parmesan Cauliflower Steaks

I love the presentation of cauliflower cut into big steaks, but you could easily cut them into smaller pieces if you're feeding a crowd. Some tips for making cauliflower steaks Cut the cauliflower in half first, then each half again. If it's important to you that the steaks remain whole be very careful when you make the second cut. Have a look and make sure that you're cutting up the stem. If you look closely at the pictures you'll see that there are three steaks and a bunch of other big picture. Clearly I wasn't careful enough this time. Don't skimp on the oil. Let the cauliflower hang out in the oven until it is very golden and has lots of dark spots. The darker it is the more flavour it will have. Don't be shy with the salt. Salt helps coax out the natural flavour of whatever it is you are cooking. Don't miss it. Use real parmesan and real lemon. Real food makes all the difference.

Mashed Purple Yams with Sesame Brown Butter

 Eating purple yams is like having dessert for dinner. It’s the best.  Have you guys heard of, bought, cooked with Japanese purple yams before? If you haven’t you may have seen them, looking rather yam-like, next to the rest of the potato-y things. They look a lot like a regular yam, only they’re a little…

Roasted Cauliflower 'Polenta' with Mushrooms and Hazelnuts

Cauliflower ‘Polenta’ with Mushrooms and Hazelnuts

I’ve been obsessed with turning cauliflower into things it’s totally not.  Like polenta. Cauliflower makes great polenta. It’s every bit as creamy and comforting as the real thing, but so much healthier for you. You got to admit, regular polenta is pretty boring and bland, unless you add mountains of butter, cream and cheese to…
