THIS IS A GREAT WHOLE FOOD MEAT SUBSTITUTE FOR VEGETARIANS AND VEGANS / EASY / VERSATILE / DELICIOUS
Roasted cauliflower steaks or florets, either way, are simply delicious and requires very little effort.
Cauliflower steaks are great:
used as a base and topped with a topping, side or salad.
as a "meat alternative" option if you're vegan or vegetarian or having to cook for one.
Here are a few more ideas how you can enjoy them:
Cauliflower Steaks topped with Chimichurri and Rocket or MicroHerbs
Cauliflower Steaks topped with Baked Beans
Cauliflower Steaks topped with Mexican Quinoa Salad
1 head of Cauliflower / roughly 700g - 1kg
Preheat the oven to 180°
With the cauliflower turned on its head and its stem facing up, carefully plan out your slices (roughly 15mm wide) starting from the center of the stem outwards. Depending on the cauliflower, you could get one to two great slices (or even more if you're lucky) but don't stress too much about it...the florets taste just as good ;)
Place the slices on a baking tray with parchment baking paper.
Drizzle or spray the cauliflower with olive oil. Give it a rub with your fingers to coat evenly.
Season with salt. Here you can also introduce some other seasonings and spices depending on what you're serving it with like; dukkah, curry powder or herbs, so get creative!
Pop it in the oven and after 25 minutes check on how it's coming along. Continue to roast until you're happy with it...just make sure the florets don't burn...caramelised crunchiness is good...charcoal is bad :)
Once you take it out of the oven, squeeze half a lemon juice over it.
ENJOY + HAPPY EATING!
