Easy Cauliflower Steaks
I love cauliflower steaks.
They require very few ingredients, are easy to prep, and ready in under 30 minutes.
I mean really, what’s not to love?
On selecting the cauliflower:
Personal experience has taught me that, when it comes to slicing a cauliflower for steaks, aside from making sure your knife is super sharp, the other thing to note is, it’s definitely better to go with a smaller head of cauliflower rather than a larger one.
I know how tempting it is to grab a giant one (aren’t they beautiful?!), especially when the price is per head rather than the pound but, trust me on this one, you want the smaller size. The larger ones tend to fall apart and you don’t get that nice fan shape that looks so pretty on the plate.
What to serve with cauliflower steaks:
We like them with mashed potatoes, green beans, carrots.. Pretty much anything that goes well with meat-based steaks will work equally well with cauliflower steaks. 😉

I would never have thought to make cauliflower a main dish like this. They look really good, and that spice mixture sounds delicious!
Thanks! I usually serve them with sides of mashed potatoes and green beans or peas. Gravy over the top can be a nice addition, too.
