What My Readers are Saying about my Chimichurri Cauliflower Steak Recipe and their True & Tried photos

“Made this last night, but wanting a bit of protein to round things out, I placed a fried egg on top then drizzled a bit more chimichurri over it. It was stunning and well-received by “HimWhoDoesNotBelieveMeatlessCanBeDelicious.” I would have given 5 stars but couldn’t get the fifth one to “take.” Definitely 5-stars.” Lizzie
