I was recently sent a copy of Rose Reisman’s Meal Revolution to review on my blog. This wonderful cookbook features recipes inspired by Canada’s New Food Guide. Reisman is well known to Canadian households as she is an author of 20 cookbooks, is frequently interviewed on TV and has been in the food industry for over 25 years. Her latest cookbook features more plant-based recipes such as Crispy Fried Tofu with Maple Soy Glaze over Edamame; Instant Pot Lentil Quinoa Chili; and Avocado, Tomato and Cucumber Salad.

If you are not following an exclusive vegan or vegetarian diet, you’ll be pleased to know that Rose Reisman’s Meal Revolution also contains many chicken, steak and fish recipes. One recipe I was eager to try is the Cauliflower Steaks with Panko Crust, Tomatoes, Green Beans and White Beans. I have become a huge fan of roasted cauliflower. The enhanced flavour is totally worth the 30 minutes it takes to roast this cruciferous vegetable. Because I find beans hard to digest, I omitted them from the version I made.

If you want to make this a complete meal, you will want to add beans such as canned or cooked white kidney beans. Just add the beans to the tomato, olive oil and salt and pepper mixture. I love the look of the cauliflower steaks on the plate – they look like cauliflower trees to me – so I would definitely serve them with some grilled chicken or salmon for a complete meal.

Cut cauliflower in half from top to bottom, then slice each half into three steaks.

    I love cauliflower. In fact, I have an almost similar recipe called cauliflower chops. I’ll try yours with panko crust because I’m sure it will have a bit of crunch.

    What a great dish idea to make using cauliflower. Love baked veggies and am pretty sure the panko crust and the sides of tomatoes and green beans will taste great!

  3. This is some really healthy recipe. I haven’t tried it this way before though. Might be worth the try. Thanks for the recipe.
