Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Steaks
Recipe type: Entree; Side Dish
Total time: 
Serves: 2-6
Giant slabs of cauliflower are just waiting to be roasted with your favourite seasonings! The number of servings depends on whether this is a main dish or side dish.
  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • Small handful of parsley, chopped
  • Juice of half a lemon
  1. Whisk together 2 Tbsp olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, and Parmesan and set aside.
  2. Remove cauliflower leaves and trim the stem end, leaving the core intact. With a large knife, cut the cauliflower from top to base into ½-3/4-inch-thick slabs. Season slabs on both sides with salt and pepper. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a large baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  3. Heat remaining 1 Tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, sear the cauliflower slabs until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. With a spatula, gently transfer the seared slabs to the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Brush or spoon seasoning mixture onto cauliflower slabs on baking sheet. Any loose florets can be roasted alongside.
  5. Roast in the oven until tender when pricked with a fork, about 15-20 minutes. Squeeze lemon juice evenly over roasted cauliflower, garnish with parsley, and serve.
