Step for Making Cauliflower Steaks

  1. Remove the outer green leaves from the head of the cauliflower but leave the stem at the bottom so it helps the steaks hold together
  2. Cut the cauliflower in half lengthwise through the center then cut thick slices, about 1 1/2-inch thick to have a heartier bite and stay intact (use any that crumble or fall off in salads or make cauliflower rice )
  3. Pan-fry, bake, or air fry using oil spray, salt, and pepper
  4. Note: additional suggestions, toppings, and spices in the recipe card below

Cooking Methods

  1. Baking: preheat oven to 400 degrees place on a parchment-lined baking pan, season, and bake for 24 minutes flipping once in between
  2. Pan Fried: heat 1 teaspoon oil or just air spray the tops and bottom of the cauliflower. Sear both side salt, pepper to taste for around 8 minutes for each side flipping once
