Roasted Spicy Lemon Pepper Cauliflower "Steak"

I love how beautiful this recipe turns out.  Something about the big slice of cauliflower to have as a centerpiece of the meal always make the finished plate really lovely.  It’s delicious and friendly for most any diet (just replace the oil with a little water if you’re cooking for someone on a low fat diet).
