Garlic Butter Cauliflower Steaks

This could be your new favourite way to eat steak. Milk solids in butter help the cauliflower steaks get beautifully caramelised, golden and tender. 

Cauliflower Basics

  • There’s a huge variety of cauliflower plants around the world: white, green, orange, and even purple cauliflower
  • In recent times, the vegetable has become a banting favourite as a rice or flour alternative due to its low calorie content
  • Cauliflower rice is made by pulsing it in a food processor and then cooking the ‘rice’ in a pan

Cauliflower steaks

  • 1 large head of cauliflower or 2 small heads
  • 3 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 C.
  2. Remove the leaves from the head of cauliflower (don’t throw them away – they are perfectly edible and delicious roasted with olive oil)
  3. Cut off the tough stem underneath. 
  4. Cut across the cauliflower to make 2 cm pieces. Place the steaks on a baking sheet. 
  5. In a small bowl, mix the softened butter and garlic. 
  6. Spread the butter mixture on both sides of the cauliflower steaks and add salt and pepper. 
  7. Roast for 10 minutes, then flip the steaks and roast another 15 minutes or until the stems are tender when pierced with a fork. 
  8. Serve with chimichurri or herb pesto.
