Happy Monday! I’m so excited for my great pal Georgia Pellegrini. Not only does she lead ladies on the finest of outdoor adventures….but she also has an amazing new cookbook/lifestyle manual called Modern Pioneering.
Thumb through the pages of this hearty book and you will find more than 150 recipes, projects & skills for a self sufficient life. These Cauliflower Steaks with Pine Nut Dressing peaked my interest immediately. My tastebuds we not disappointed.
I’ve known G for quite a few years now. She is a wonderful gal with robust skills in & out of the kitchen. She can rock red lip gloss while perfectly aiming a shot gun to hunt dinner. Georgia is super smart, edgy & stylin’. She now has her own clothing line (which I must get my hands on!)
Self-Sufficiency is the Ultimate Girl Power. (G says that & I agree)
She is someone that I respect. She has great wisdom well beyond her years.
If you don’t know Georgia all ready then she is someone you need to become acquainted with. If you have any proclivity to take a lush trip to the great outdoors (with the finest food, drink & outdoor adventures then I urge you to book a trip with her.)
I’ve been on two Georgia Pellegrini Adventures Getaways. One was to the Texas Hill Country the other was in Montana. LOVED them both!
OK. Back to Modern Pioneering.
This book/manual is filled with the most useful information. It’s a book for modern gals to become doer’s in this fast paced world we live in.
It will inspire you to put down the iPad, pick up a tool, knife (or something along those lines) and start creating. In this book G will inspire you to break out of your comfort zone & explore your inner pioneer.
Inside the pages of Modern Pioneering you can learn about:
- Efficient Gardening: on the balcony, rooftop, patio or planter box (you don’t need to live on a farm to grow stuff)
- Gorgeous Recipes: including Lemony Fig Jam, Pea Pancakes, Coffee Ice Cubes, Apple Butter, Brown Sugar Bacon & these Cauliflower Steaks
- How to: make a Watermelon Keg, Preserve Herbs, Grow Sprouts, Dry Foods, Preserve with Alcohol, Negotiate a Flea Market
- Crafty Stuff: DIY Chalk Paint, Painted Mason Jars, turn Glass Bottles into Glassware, make a Gourd Bird House, How to make Paper
The layout & graphic design of this book make it an easy, fun & playful read. It has abundant, very lovely photography as well!
I’m a really big fan of meaty, protein packed meals. In this case it was really easy to go without the meat.
This cauliflower is hearty, full of flavor & will give you tons of sustainable energy for skiing, hiking, mountain bike riding & active projects. The cauliflower steaks are softened in the oven then sautéed in butter. Then they are dressed with a mix of olive oil, toasted pine nuts, golden raisins and fresh parsley.
They look super pretty to!
I promise you will not miss the meat in this healthy, meatless meal. I served ours with rainbow quinoa (my favorite!) this makes it a full, well rounded meal.
Another thing that perfectly rounds off this meal is a glass of fruity Rosé. Yep.
Enjoy & don’f forget to order your copy of this book today (you can also enter my giveaway for a signed copy of Modern Pioneering in the widget below.)

What a great way to enjoy some cauliflower!
I’m great about growing my own herbs but I’d love tips on how to grow more in a small space.
I enjoy gardening, although I don’t have a green thumb. I’m trying to grow more veggies so I don’t have to buy them at my farmers market.
These are gorgeous, Marla! I love cauli and I love the thick-cut aspect of this! Soooo good I bet! Pinned
I channel my inner pioneer by not driving anywhere and walking at least 2 days a week
Love that Averie, you stay in such great shape!!
I am a huge fan of cauliflower! These steaks look fantastic!
I love to garden!!
I love to garden when i have time. I am also majorly into DIY projects. Love the cauliflower steaks!
By growing and cooking with my own herbs!!
I am going to channel my inner pioneer by growing my own vegetables and herbs.
Marla, what a gorgeous recipe. We grew up in a much smaller town than I do now… which is still considered a small town. But, I ride my pink bike all over with my boys. I hardly drive my truck unless I need to go down the canyon. But, that’s how it always was growing up, if we wanted to get somewhere, we walked. I’m basically known around town as the blonde on the pink bike. Have a blessed day. 🙂
Thanks Gloria! I love your story about pedaling your pink bike with your boys (and blond hair!) Sooooo sweet! I do the same when I can in Telluride 🙂
Succulent! I’m bookmarking this recipe.
Now Rosa…I love that word! Succulent 🙂
So adding this to my repertoire! Just started making cauliflower “rice” and cauliflower “alfredo sauce.” These look delicious!
I just saw her book yesterday in Barnes and Noble and fell in love! SO beautiful and these cauliflower steaks are right up my alley.
I channel my inner pioneer by recreating/reinventing all of the foods we used to love before we found out we had to go gluten free. It may sound silly, but using all of these new ingredients and new techniques is pretty much like navigating uncharted territory. I mean come on, my Mom’s a pastry chef. Having to go gluten free was a mind warp on a lot of levels. Ha!
Very cool Meg! It really is a book to fall in love with. I totally know what you mean about that GF uncharted territory ~ sounds like you are making the best of it & having FUN anyways 😉
My hubby and I compost and get most of our meat from my grandmother who owns her own farm and does all of her own butchery!
Beautiful dish! Love the looks of this new cookbook!
You make these cauliflower steaks look SO GOOD!!
I just started canning what I grow. It always seemed a bit scary to me but I took the plunge and I am so glad I did.
hi, we grow a huge garden every year & put it up for winter eating, thanks for the giveaway & love your recipes!
I feel like a modern pioneer every time I work in my veggie garden.

I enjoy growing my own vegetables, seasonally . Anxious to try this recipe, do so love the simple cauliflower.
I channel my inner pioneer by going to the shooting range and hiking
I LOVE the shooting range & hiking too 🙂
I try to make everything I eat from scratch, just like in the pioneer days.
Love this presentation for Cauliflower!! Lived on a remote Ranch for many years and felt very blessed to raise my daughter well beyond the sidewalks. We still Upland Game Bird Hunt here in Eastern OR and put on a Seafood Buffet on the first night of Pheasant Camp!
Gardening and hiking!
I would say just with knowing how to cook a good steak. Meats in general used to intimidate the heck out of me, so I feel good about having it down now!
Those cauliflower steaks couldn’t look anymore delicious! Those are on my recipe to-do list!! YUM!
I try to channel my inner modern pioneer by growing herbs/veggies and trying to reuse/recycle items around my house.
So fresh and healthy looking, I bet it tastes amazing!
I rock my cowboy boots 24/7
Ha! Love it!
Oh I can’t wait to get my hands on this book! These cauliflower steaks sound amazing!
I cook my own meals, rarely eat out and prefer to be a pioneer this way!
I cook simple vegetarian food!
I built a small raised garden this year, and I’m psyched for increasing my home-grown veggies from my previous container gardening.
I love these cauliflower steaks, What a great idea!
We love cauliflower in my house! We have been really enjoying the Romancesco(?) variety as well as purple cauliflower and cheddar too. All the varieties really have a unique flavor! This looks like a great, easy recipe and a wonderful book!
I can’t wait to try this recipe! Love me some cauliflower! YUM!
I like to make my own strawberry jelly during the summer, and use fresh vegetables to roast from the garden!
This looks like a great recipe- can’t wait to try it!
So delicious! I need to get my hands on Georgia’s new book!
This looks fantastic. I could have this everyday. How creative with the use of pine nuts and raisins!
Awesome, awesome! You always find the collest stuff to share. Thank you and keep it coming!
Awwww, thank you Jen!! I try my hardest to bring you guys super cool ideas 🙂
Gorgeous! I have a head of cauliflower in the fridge and it’s about to become this!!
Fabulous! Gotta love when you fall into the right recipe at the right time 😉
I cook almost all of our food. I would love to get chickens though!
Chickens would be great! It would be such a great treat to be able to collect the eggs each day 🙂
I make all my breads from scratch and whatever else I can
I use a black iron skillet.
I have a beautiful garden full of veggies that we eat from whenever possible. In addition, we make everything from scratch.. from tortillas to sour cream. No processed foods for us!
Tender and luscious steaks. A great new recipe for the weeknights. I try to channel my inner pioneer through yoga.
Have a fabulous mother’s day!
I just made this recipe for dinner tonight for my family and we loved it! The pine nut and raisin combination is so delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Awesome! So glad it was a successful meal 🙂 It is really amazing how those unusual flavors come together perfectly.
How do I get my cauliflower to not fall apart into florets every time I slice it for the steaks?
Great question Cathie! You can blanche it for a few minutes first, that might help.
