Have you heard of the new Vegan Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Steak? If not you should definitely read this post and hopefully, it will inspire you to make it for your family. It’s delicious and so healthy for you!
Finding new exciting dishes for dinner can be a challenge sometimes. We all get into these ruts where we end up making the same things for dinner every night. When this happens my husband and I go back and forth, “What do you want to eat for dinner?- Husband “I don’t know what do you want for dinner? – Me”.
I’m a super lucky lady that just happens to have a husband who loves to cook. Many times he asks me what I want or if I’m craving anything. Some nights I can think of something right away and as I always tell him, “He makes my dreams come true.” With his creativity he comes up with an amazing dish that is better then I imagined or was craving.
In this post, I wanted to share a recipe that he just came up with that really was a huge hit, even with our 6-year-old and our 19-month-old loved it!
Why Not Have A Beef Steak? Why Vegan Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Steak?
Just this year we became vegetarians. We are learning new ways to create common recipes with vegetable substitutes instead of chicken or steak. We had a large head of cauliflower and I’ve been wanting to try cauliflower steaks since we bought it. So when he asked what I wanted for dinner I suggested string beans, potatoes, and cauliflower steaks.
He right away had this look of inspiration in his eye and he marched to the kitchen and started working feverishly. I was super excited and couldn’t wait to share how it went with all of you. I grabbed my phone and documented the meal preparations. The result was a deliciously fresh and tasty meal that was hearty enough that it did well in replacing the traditional steak. Pairing it with potatoes and string beans and carrots, it all came out great.
We love Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Steak
Oven Roasted Cauliflower Steaks: (Nutrition Facts about Cauliflower)
1 Full Cauliflower Head
1 T Olive Oil
1/2 t. Adobe All-purpose seasoning
1/2 t. Lemon Pepper
1/2 t. Italian Seasoning
Rotisserie Chicken BBQ Seasoning
- Preheat the oven to 500°F. Clean and dry the cauliflower. Cut it into 1” steaks down from the top of the crown to the base of the stem. This gets you about two nice steaks and then some little pieces from the sides.
2. Brush on olive oil lightly on both sides. Add the seasoning to taste, just enough so you can see it but don’t overdo it. Season both sides and lay out on a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined cookie sheet.
3. Cover the cookie sheet with aluminum foil tightly sealed around the sides. Put into the oven for 5 mins covered.
4. Remove the cover and then put it back into the oven to become toasted for 10 minutes.
If you would like it more crispy take it and flip the cauliflower steaks and cook for another 8 minutes.
They are done when they are the desired roasted golden color.
We thoroughly enjoyed this deliciously fresh and yummy meal. Give Vegan Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Steak a try and let me know what you think.
The next day we went to the grocery store and bought up 4 more cauliflower heads to try more tasty recipes. Stay tuned for more yummy recipes. 🙂
