- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

- Place the meat in a 9x13-inch baking dish, and pat it down to a uniform thickness.
- Cover the meat with an even layer of the sautéed vegetables, and bake for 40 minutes.
- Drain the water from the cauliflower, and place the cauliflower in a food processor or high speed blender, processing until creamy.
- Remove the meat from the oven, and set the oven to broil on high.
- Pour an even layer of the cauliflower over the meat, and broil for 10-15 minutes until the cauliflower has golden peaks.
