Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

I used Organic Purple Graffiti Cauliflower but you can use whatever variety you have to hand.

This dish is simple to make.

Wash, pat dry, and slice your cauliflower, about 2cm / 3/4 inch thick. I was left with two steaks and lots of bits.

Coat a baking sheet with a little oil. I used Extra Virgin Greek olive oil.

In a small bowl put a glug of the oil, enough to cover both sides of the steaks.

Add seasoning of your choice to the bowl. I used crushed garlic, fresh chilli, some smoked paprika, sea salt and black pepper.

Arrange the steaks and the bits of cauliflower on the baking sheet and coat them with the oil and seasoning mixture. If you’re a fan of garlic add a few unpeeled whole cloves.

Place in a preheated oven Gas mark 6 / 400°F / 200°C

Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, carefully flip the steaks, coat the other side and place back in the oven for another 15 to 20 minutes until soft inside and crispy outside.

For an extra kick squeeze the cooked garlic cloves onto the steaks and drizzle lemon juice and/or tamari over them before serving.

I served this with a leftover baked potato, salad, cooked organic beetroot and organic lettuce.  You can make a sauce to go with this, but today I just wanted an easy tasty lunch.
