I try to eat fairly healthy a good chunk of the time, but cheesecake is a major weakness of mine. Though I avoid it most of the year, when it comes to Shavuot I feel fully justified in giving in.

Ingredients: 
One head cauliflower
3-4 tablespoons olive or canola oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
