The Recipe:

  • 2 “steaks” of cauliflower (1 inch thick, cut from the middle of the head)
  • 1/2t paprika
  • 3/4t garlic powder
  • 3/4t salt
  • 3/4t pepper
  • A 400° oven
  • *Optional, top with the herby sauce at the bottom of the page

*************************************************************************************

Generously spread olive oil on a sheet tray and let it heat up in the oven while you’re cutting the cauliflower and mixing the spices together.

Carefully place the cauliflower steaks on the sheet tray to coat in oil on both sides, and toss half the spice mixture onto the top side of the cauliflower, setting aside the rest of the spices for the second side.

Cook, untouched, 15 minutes. Flip steaks, coat in the rest of the spice mixture, and crank the oven up to 450° for 8-10 more minutes.

If desired, top with some of this herby sauce:

1/2c parsley, 1/4c cilantro, 1T lemon zest, 1/2t crushed red pepper flakes, 2T red wine vinegar, 2t olive oil, salt and pepper. Blend it all up and use it sparingly, as it’s tangy and delicious.

*Don’t be wasteful. Use the stems and leaves. Just make sure you chop the stems before blending.

Enjoy!
