How to make cauliflower steaks two ways

Got a cauliflower? Try making these cauliflower steaks! Large cauliflowers work best.

To prepare the cauliflower steak:

1. Wash the cauliflower and remove leaves.
2. Carefully trim stalk so the base sits flat on the work surface. Cut into chunky cross sections of about 4cm. The outer most sections will fall apart as not connected to the stalk (save these for use in another dish).

For the tahini and lemon cauliflower steak:

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • ½ tbsp lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh herbs, finely chopped (such as parsley, coriander and mint)

Method

1. Brush the steak with olive oil and season with sea salt and black pepper.

2. Place steaks (oil up) on to an oiled baking tray.

3. Roast for 15 mins in a preheated oven at 200°C / gas mark 6.

4. After 15 minutes, turn steak over, season with salt and pepper and brush with more oil.

5. Return to the oven for 15-20 mins until beginning to brown. Serve with tahini and lemon dressing (1 tbsp tahini, ½ tbsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper to taste).

6. Sprinkle with the chopped fresh herbs.
