Dish: Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Indian Spices
For the second day of bookmarked recipes, I have a very simple and tasty roasted cauliflower steak recipe. My husband recently had it at a restaurant and he really liked it, so I set about making it at home. I followed this recipe from The Kitchn.
Before I get to the recipe, I have to show you the cauliflower I bought. It was one gigantic sized one, I’ve never seen this big cauliflower ever in my life. The Indian grocery store had a ton of these humongous ones for just $3.00 each. I immediately picked one up, not really thinking of what to make but this roasted cauliflower steak was the best use for half of it.
Care needs to be taken while cutting cauliflower into steaks because the florets tend to break apart. So make sure to keep the stem intact while removing the leaves and then cut it with the head facing down on the cutting board.
Spices used to flavor the cauliflower can be customized to ones likes and dislikes. Here I used Indian spices, but you can make it Mexican by adding some chipotle or ancho chili powder or make it Italian style by adding some dried basil, crushed red pepper flakes and so on. Serve it over rice or quinoa or barley or just a bed of greens along with a soup or gravy. I made a lentil based gravy aka dal to make this a complete meal.
