We first tried Roasted Cauliflower Steaks as a side dish at La Hiki Kitchen one of the fine restaurants at the Four Seasons Hotel on Oahu. We loved it!

At that time I had no idea how easy it was to make at home.  Once I realized how simple it was to make I serve it all the time!  We’ve always enjoyed cauliflower, but I usually fry it, add it in Macluba (an Arabic dish that literally means upside-down!), or make deep fried cauliflower fritters called Em Shaat.  Of course we serve it riced and mashed as well.  Cauliflower is really versatile!  And adding these Roasted Cauliflower Steaks makes them even more so.

You may be wondering what are Cauliflower Steaks? They’re thick slabs of cauliflower that’s cut from stem to top.  To get them you use the middle portion of the cauliflower, the section that’s the tallest.  You can get about 2-3 steaks per cauliflower head.

To make cauliflower steaks I trim off the leaves from the stem of the head.  Then I place it stem up on a cutting board and slice down from stem to the florets.  I make the slices about 1″ thick and try to get as many slices as I can.  I save the smaller pieces to use for something else later or you can roast them along side the steaks.  Slicing the steaks is probably the hardest part.  It gets way easier after that!

So here’s the recipe for Roasted Cauliflower Steaks.  You can adjust the spices to suit your tastes.  BTW this dish is Vegan and Keto friendly!

Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

Ingredients:

1 Cauliflower, sliced into 1″ steaks

1/4 Cup Olive Oil

  • You can change  up this recipe by changing the spices you put on the cauliflower steaks.  Try mixing cumin, chili powder, or oregano in the oil!
