Cauliflower Steaks with Roasted Red Pepper and Butter Bean Sauce
I totally goofed on this recipe but somehow it turned out delicious! The recipe said to crisp the butter beans and without realizing it I threw them in the blender with the sauce. Oops! It actually made the sauce super creamy. My son was eating it by the spoonful! I also sprinkled some left over black beans I had in the fridge for added protein.
🍷 I would pair this dish with the 2018 Conte De La Terre Chenin Blanc . Cauliflower Steaks with Roasted Red Pepper and Butter Bean Sauce. .
