Step 1

Trim the stem and remove the leaves from the cauliflower heads. Do not remove too much of the stem, otherwise, your "steaks" will fall apart.

Step 2

With a large knife, cut the cauliflower lengthwise through the center into 1 1/2-inch (4 cm) thick pieces. Depending on the thickness of the stem you might end up with 2 or 3 "steaks". Don't throw away the little cauliflower pieces which aren't connected to the stem, use them as well to make cauliflower "wings".

Step 3

Add some water with salt to a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Once the water boils, add the cauliflower, cover the pot and cook the cauliflower for 4-5 minutes to soften it a little. After 4-5 minutes, remove the cauliflower and set aside. You can also steam the cauliflower instead of cooking it.

Step 4

In a small bowl mix together oil, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, cumin, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper to taste.

Step 5

Preheat oven to 410 degrees Fahrenheit (210 degrees Celsius) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 6

Prepare the breading by simply mixing all ingredients (chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, paprika, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper) in a bowl with a whisk.

Step 7

Place cauliflower steaks on the lined baking sheet. Brush with the marinade from all sides (see pictures above in the blog post).

Step 8

Dip the cauliflower steaks in the breading and coat from all sides. Then spray with some cooking spray for a crispy breading.

Step 9

Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown, crispy and fork-tender. Flip cauliflower steaks after 15-20 minutes.

Step 10

Transfer to a platter and serve with fresh herbs, lemon juice, and your favorite dip. I made a cashew tahini dip (check the notes below for the recipe). Enjoy!
