As we pay greater attention to where our food comes from, our health and the health of what we’re consuming, even the most carnivorous eaters are taking a break from meat – at least occasionally. Of course, it can be challenging to follow Meatless Monday, the international campaign to eat vegetarian on Mondays. So we’ve turned to chefs for a little inspiration. Today, David Burke Townhouse in New York dishes up Honey-Soy Roasted Cauliflower.
