Cauliflower Steaks

  • Golden Baked Cauliflower Steaks
  • This is my new favourite side dish.  I just love the simplicity of ingredients combined with the crunchy topping. The turmeric provides an aromatic and golden colour to the white ‘steaks’.   Enjoy hot, cold or warm.
  • Preparation Time:   10 minutes
  • Cooking Time: Approx  40 minutes
  • Serves:  6 -8 people


  • 2 large heads of cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano or mixed herbs
  • Garnish
  • 50g chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons roasted walnuts/ pecans – roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds


  1. Remove the outer leaves from each cauliflower head. Cut off the bottom stem end so that you create a flat base and can stand the cauliflower up on a chopping board.
  2. Resting the cauliflower on the stem, use a large, sharp knife to cut 3cm thick moderate "steaks."
  3. Combine the salt, paprika, turmeric and herbs together.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200C/ 400 F/ Gas mark 6.
  5. Line a baking tray with baking parchment paper. Transfer the cauliflower steaks.
  6. Drizzle with olive oil and then coat with your spice mix.
  7. Bake for 35 -40 minutes until golden.
  8. Transfer to a large flat serving dish and garnish with chopped parsley, walnuts or pecan nuts, sunflower, pumpkin seeds and pomegranate seeds.
