Cauliflower “Steaks” Recipe

Versatile cauliflower can take center stage for dinner! Try these seasoned “steaks” for a dramatic supper. 

(Serves 4-5)


  • 2 Tablespoons vegan margarine, melted
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 head cauliflower



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2.      In a small bowl, combine melted vegan margarine, olive oil, and all spices. Stir until well mixed, the texture will be like a paste.
  3.      Remove exterior leaves from cauliflower. Slice through the entire cauliflower vertically, making it into 6 steaks, each about 1 inch thick. Smear cauliflower slices with spice paste, coating both sides of each slice evenly. Place on prepared sheet pan.
  4.      Bake 12-15 minutes per side, flipping once during baking. Finished cauliflower should be tender and lightly browned. Serve warm with your preferred vegan side dishes or sauce.
