Ummm…yum! That is all I can say for this Cauliflower Steak recipe. Even the most avid meat lover will love this plant-based steak alternative.

Serves: 4


  • 1 head of cauliflower, stem intact 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1⁄2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp black pepper
  • 1⁄4 tsp salt
  • 225g of lentils (black or brown) 
  • 1⁄2 cup fresh mint, chopped 
  • Garnish with capers
  • 1 x 450g jar of roasted red peppers (in water) 
  • 1⁄2 cup almonds
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil to drizzle on top


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Remove any greenery from the cauliflower and keep the stem intact. Cut cauliflower into 1⁄2 inch pieces lengthwise. See the picture above.
  2. Carefully place cauliflower steaks on a sheet pan. Drizzle each side with olive oil and spices. Bake for 15 minutes, flip and cook for another 5 minutes.
  3. While the cauliflower is cooking, boil the lentils (according to package instructions) and blend the roasted red peppers and almonds in a blender until smooth.
  4. Serve with 1⁄2 cup of lentils, 1 cauliflower steak, and all the sauce you want! Don't forget to garnish with the capers!
