I was so excited when I found another cauliflower recipe! Eaten plain, cauliflower is a bit bland. However, when you add any spice or other flavoring to this versatile veggie, the flavors the cauliflower take on are amazing!!
So it seems cauliflower is everywhere – fried rice, nachos, enchiladas, tortillas and more. Now, we add “steak” to that list of foods that cauliflower can be used for!

Spicy Lime Cauliflower Steaks
1 large head of cauliflower
1/4 cup olive oil
2 limes, zested and juice
2 cloves garlic, finely grated
1 teaspoon agave syrup note: use Stevia or omit all together
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves
Lime wedges, to serve
Start by washing and cutting the cauliflower in 1-inch thick steaks, the remaining florets can be saved and used for another dish or juicing.
Mix all ingredients except the cilantro in a small mixing bowl brush the cauliflower steaks and use the remaining sauce in the pan.
Fry the steaks in medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes on each side. The steaks are ready when the cauliflower start to become softer and has a nice golden color. Serve with some freshly squeezed lime and cilantro.
Final cooking time will depend on how thick you cut the steaks, and on the heat. I cooked mine at high heat until well grilled on the outside, but still a little crispy inside.
Yields 3-4 Servings depending on how many steaks you can get from the head of cauliflower.
Approved for all cycles.
