A few tips:
- I prefer to only use a little bit of olive oil, usually brushing it just gently not to make it too heavy or greasy.
- Roast the cauliflower steak until it is golden brown and soft, but not too soft. You want it to be tender but still have some chewing resistance. Just like a beef steak.
- I used chanterelles for this dish, but you can use any mushrooms that you like or have at home. It will pair very well with the cauliflower and pecorino anyway.
- If you don’t like or have pecorino at home you can replace it by parmesan cheese or any other strong and flavorful cheese that you like.
