Roasted cauliflower steak turns into a delicate vegetable that is slightly caramelized. The wonderful creamy slightly spicy cashew sauce complements the cauliflower beautifully. This is a great gluten free dish for a summery meal or accompanying meat or chicken dishes. The sauce tastes just like creamy Parmesan cheese garlic sauce, you will love it! This comforting gluten free vegan meal is healthy and super easy to make
