Roasted Cauliflower Steak

"Not only is this quick and easy, it’s almost not even a recipe it’s so simple. Usually my version of a meatless meal is called potato chips! Then my life changed when I had a roasted cauliflower steak. It’s so hearty, smokey and so satisfying for dinner and of course absolutely perfect for Thanksgiving. " - Chop Happy
