  • 2 half heads of cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ cup chopped shallot
  • 1 package (11 oz) baby spinach
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

  • Remove all the top leaves from the cauliflower, but leave the stem intact. Place on cutting board, side down. Using a large chef's knife, cut two 1-inch-wide slices from the center of each head to make 4 cauliflower "steaks." (Reserve remaining cauliflower for later use.) Place steaks on prepared baking sheet. . Brush both sides with a tablespoon of oil and sprinkle with salt. 
  • Roast, turning halfway through cooking, until cauliflower steak is tender, 30 to 35 minutes.
  •  Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick pan over medium high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 1 minute. Add spinach in batches and cook, stirring, until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add dill, parsley, garlic and pepper. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Transfer the spinach mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add the ricotta and feta. 
  • Turn the broiler to high. Top each cauliflower steak with 1/2 cup spinach mixture and 2 tablespoons of cheddar. Broil cauliflower until cheese melts and begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
