The Chew: Cauliflower Steak
The Chew’s Michael Symon made something for dinner that was only 200 calories! Check out his Pan-Roasted Cauliflower with Scallops Recipe. Have you ever tried a so-called Cauliflower Steak?
Symon suggested making sure you are eating at least 50% vegetables when you are trying to cut calories in a smart way. Cauliflower Steak will satisfy you without adding to your waistline. Try cutting a head into 2" steaks, all the way to the core (just remove the parts you don’t want). This will give you a great presentation.
As for the scallops, make sure not to overcrowd the pan or they will not cook correctly. Let the heat and fat do their thing when you first add scallops to your oil.
