Cauliflower steak: vegetarian



1 whole cauliflower cut into “steaks”

2 tbsp olive oil
garlic powder to taste
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp parmesan cheese


When cutting the cauliflower cut off part of the stem to make it flat at the bottom and to get the greens off, then, starting in the center cut out four steaks about 1 inch thick. the outer edges will fall off, you can roast the outer florets as well.

Heat oven to 400º.

Mix the rest of the ingredients for the basting. Coat each piece sparingly with this mix, save half to use after you turn the steaks over. Bake for 20 minutes and turn over, baste and bake another 20 minutes. If they do not turn a little brown on the edges and you’d like more, put under the broiler for a couple minutes to brown.

Serves 2: 180 calories each serving, 360 calories for the whole thing.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This was fun to make, but really it’s much easier to just cut up the cauliflower into florets and pour the dressing over it, mix and roast. Steaks seem to be a fad right now, but does not do anything to add to the flavor or the presentation. We served these with a side of spaghetti with sauce.
