  • 1 Whole cauliflower
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp Garlic granules
  • ½ tsp Turmeric
  • ½ tsp Onion powder
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven at 200C/400F conventional oven and 180C/365F Fan oven
  • Rinse the cauliflower head under running water to remove any dirt and carefully pat dry or leave to air dry. Remove the outer leaves of the cauliflower head and trim off the stems.
  • Cut the cauliflower into two halves lengthwise. Then cut each half about 1-inch thick slab to the stem. You would have some cauliflower florets as excess, save them to use in another recipe roast along with the steaks.
  • Place the cauliflower steaks in a roasting pan and season both sides with salt and pepper.

  • Brush the seasoning mix generously on both sides of the cauliflower
  • Place it in the preheated oven and roast for 10 minutes (based on the thickness of my steak), take it out of the oven, carefully flip it to the other side and continue to roast for another 10 to 15 minutes or until fork-tender and golden around the edges.
  • Serve immediately with some sauce like chimichurri or green sauce and other sides of choice. It is also great with some toasted pine nuts, I didn’t have any on hand when I made this recipe. Enjoy



How to make cauliflower steaks in an air fryer
Follow all the instructions above and cook in a preheated air fryer at 380C/190F for 15 minutes. Flip if halfway through so it cooks and browns evenly. You can also grill the steaks too if you fancy or pan fry it in some butter and EVOO and finish off in the oven so it cooks perfectly
