Curried Cauliflower Steaks Recipe

Curried Cauliflower Steaks Recipe, vegetarian alternative to steak night!

On my quest to introduce more healthy meals to my family, I find myself more and more often gravitating towards vegetarian recipes. I've already shared my roasted veggie pitas with avocado spread, and we've been eating an obscene amount of spaghetti squash lately as well. One of the hardest things about cooking with vegetables is that you have to get over the attitude that a vegetable can't be the "main" part of a meal you're serving. Veggies are usually side dishes, especially in American culture. 

I decided to combat that thinking by making these hearty, filling and savory curried cauliflower steaks. They easily take center stage in the meal and there's no feeling of "...but where's the meat?"

Curried Cauliflower Steaks Recipe

....................................................................................................................................................

you will need

4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 1/2 Tbsp curry powder
1 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 head of cauliflower

....................................................................................................................................................

the process

1. Preheat your oven to 375. for 45 minutes. Lightly grease a baking sheet with a bit of your olive oil and set aside.

2. Take your head of cauliflower and slice it down the center (like a loaf of bread) using a very sharp knife. Make your slices about an inch thick. It will be fairly crumbly, so the less you handle them the better they'll stay together to make "steaks." Arrange your slices on your baking sheet.

3. In a small bowl, mix your oil, curry, ginger, salt and pepper until it combines completely.

4. with a pastry brush (or a spoon, like me!) brush your oil and curry mixture over your cauliflower slices like so:

5. Cook for around 45 minutes, or until they look a bit like this:

I served it over rice, with steak knives. It was a huge hit with both my kids (I know, I was surprised too. They liked curried cauliflower?!?) and Noah. Score!

  2. This looks delicious! I just tried a cabbage steak recipe that I loved, and was actually thinking of doing a curry cauliflower recipe to go with a chana saag recipe that I love instead of adding more carbs with rice. Pinning this!

  3. I think the "There must be meat for it to be a meal" culture very much exists in Britain too (at least it does in my household!). Cauliflower goes so well in curries so I'd imagine that these taste delicious. I'm not too sure what sort of reaction I'd get in my house replacing real steak with cauli, but I'd like to give it a go sometime! #RecipeoftheWeek

  4. Looks super yummy! I love cauliflower, but we would have to have it as a side dish. Just the way we've been raised. :) Thanks for sharing the recipe with SYC.

  10. Love eating curry and I have to admit that my hubby has the mentality that veggie meals aren't filling. May have to try this for him. Thanks for the recipe.
