Cauliflower Parmesan

I've been stumbling across recipes that involve cauliflower steaks recently, and I finally took the plunge. This is seriously the best idea I've ever had.

What You'll Need:

1 head cauliflower

1 egg

1/2 c rolled oats
salt, pepper
crushed red pepper

marinara (I make big batches from the Fixate cookbook and freeze it to have on hand!)
Parmesan cheese, shredded from the block

___________________________

Preheat oven to 425*

Remove base from cauliflower. Slice lengthwise into "steaks," about 1.5 inches thick. You will get 2-3 really good ones from the center. The rest will be small, but will taste equally delicous. 

Combine oats, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes in food processor. Roughly chop to combine to the texture of breadcrumbs.

Scramble egg on a shallow plate. Dredge steaks in egg, then dip in oat batter, placing in a roasting pan as you go.

Roast for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, lower temp to 350*

Top with marinara & cheese. Return to oven for 5 minutes or so, or until the cheese is melted.

Serve with pasta if you choose, or by itself!
