two cauliflower heads sliced 1" think pieces (will make 4-6 steaks depending on the size of cauliflower)
1 ounce of olive oil
2 tablespoons paprika spice
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
dash of pepper
parsley for garnish (optional)

(makes 1/2 cup) Pre-make or make while cauliflower is in the oven
2 cups of basil leaves (or use baby kale, or combine together)
1/2 cup olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup of nuts (your choice)
1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper each
Juice of 1 small lemon
NUTS: you choose: 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds or pistachios or walnuts
Preheat oven to 350.
Remove leaves from Cauliflower, keeping the stem intact.
Stand on the stem, and slice 1-inch steaks, cut all the way through the stem.
You will get 2-3 steaks from one head of cauliflower and some florets.
Place on a baking pan, drizzle with olive oil and spice mix.
Bake for 30 mins to 40 mins, at 30 mins see if a fork can easily cut through. If it doesn't, cook ten more minutes.
Once done, garnish with pesto and parsley and enjoy.
Note: you can serve the pesto cold or heat up. No need to flip the steaks while baking.
