Instructions
MAKE THE HERB SAUCE: In a blender or food processor, pulse the parsley, cilantro, mint, green onion, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil until completely smooth. Set aside.
  1. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, sear the cauliflower steaks until they are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. The cauliflower should be easily pierced with a fork but not so tender that it falls apart.
MAKE THE CAULIFLOWER STEAKS: With a sharp knife, cut the cauliflower into 1-inch-thick slices. (You should get about 8 slices.) Rub both sides of each piece of cauliflower with about 1 teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle both sides of each piece with 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika, salt and pepper.
  1. To serve, place 2 cauliflower steaks on each plate and top with a generous drizzle of the lemon-herb sauce. Serve immediately with steamed wild rice.
Recipe Notes

Leftover sauce will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180c and season the boneless, skin-on chicken breasts (skin side) with a generous amount of the salt and black pepper.
  2. Heat a large fry pan (non stick if possible) over medium-medium-high heat. When the pan is hot (check by splashing in a couple drops of water, they should instantly evaporate) drizzle in the olive oil, it should instantly start shimmering.
  3. Working in batches of two, place the seasoned chicken breasts skin-side-down into the oil and sear, don't not touch or move for 6-8 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper before turning and continue to cook for four more minutes. Remove to a clean plate and repeat with the two remaining chicken breasts.
  5. Return all the breasts back to the pan and place them in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
  6. Remove the chicken to a clean plate to rest, and start with the pan sauce.
  7. Place the pan the chicken was in onto the stove top and heat over medium high heat.
  8. Add in the diced shallot and cook until soft and translucent, 3-5 minutes. Add in the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  9. Pour in the cup of chicken stock and add the thyme and rosemary sprigs, bring to a simmer for 5-8 minutes.
  10. Remove the herbs and whisk in the tablespoon of butter. Season according to taste with desired amount of salt and pepper.
  11. Lastly place chicken back in pan before serving, spoon sauce over top and serve any additional sauce on the side and steamed greens and pan roasted potatoes.
