Smoky cauliflower steaks with chimichurri

Cauliflower has to be the most transformative vegetable. It can be turned into pizza, rice, pasta sauce, a smoothie (not my favourite application) and now cauliflower steaks. It tastes nothing like steak to be clear but it’s big, thick and smothered in a spicy smoky rub that turns it into a delicious piece of vegetable. I pared it with this chimichurri and some feta cheese which balanced the spiciness and made for a delightful lunch.

Ingredients
  

smoky cauliflower steaks

  • 1 head Cauliflower
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp smoky paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

Chimichurri

  • 2 C fresh parsley
  • 1 red chilli deseeded
  • 1/2 avocado flesh only
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • salt to taste

optional

  • feta cheese and fresh parsley to serve

Instructions
 

  • Wash the cauliflower well. Slice it into thick slices (some of the trees will fall off, that’s ok you can coat them with spice and roast them along with the steaks).
  • Add the olive oil and spices to a bowl and mix well.
  • Using a pastry brush, dip it into the paste and brush the cauliflower making sure to evenly coat it – you want that spiciness in every nook and cranny.
  • Place on a baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes.
  • While the cauliflower is roasting you can make the chimichurri by combining all the ingredients in a blender and blending until smooth.
  • Serve the steaks with the chimichurri.
