Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

That? Right there? That’s music for your mouth, otherwise known as Sweet n’ Sour Baked Cauliflower Steaks!

They’re easy, healthy and you’re not tied to the sweet n’ sour version I made. You could top them with any flavor of sauce you like… or no sauce at all! You could just rock a little olive oil and salt & pepper and call it a day!

In case you were wondering, they’re Cooper and Sally Approved

Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

Theoretically speaking, of course. They didn’t actually get to taste any… but I feel certain that if they had gotten a taste, they’d have given it two enthusiastic paws up! Good dogs!

Do you guys love cauliflower? I’ve been eating quite a bit of it lately, it’s delicious and versatile, which I love. Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza? Cauliflower n’ Cheese? Done and doner.

You simply start by slicing and roasting the caulisteaks (haha, can’t stop using the cute little “tm”!), then literally just top it with your favorite sauce and serve. They make a great main OR side dish.

  1. 1 head cauliflower
  2. S&P
  3. Olive oil or non-stick spray
  4. Sauce of choice
  1. Preheat your oven to 375. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper OR cover with non-stick spray.
  2. Peel off the green leaves at the base of your cauliflower, then slice it (top down) into 3/4" "steaks". Make sure you leave the bottom of the cauli intact, that's what will hold your pieces together. You'll also end up with some smaller bits, so just throw those in too!
  3. Spray the steaks with a bit of the non-stick or brush on some olive oil, and add a pinch of S&P. Bake for about 20 minutes, flipping once, or until they're soft enough to cut easily with a fork. I put mine under the broiler for a few moments to get a little color.
  4. Top with your favorite sauce (or with more olive oil and S&P) and get ready to make your tummy happy!

    You know, I hadn’t even tried roasted cauliflower until a few months ago. OMG I cannot believe how yummy it is. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    Oh yes, roasted cauliflower is the best! I feel so lame for professing my love to this traditionally detested vegetable, but it really is amazing once you get it brown and crispy in the oven. Bring on the cauliflower recipes, I can never get enough! 🙂

    I’ll have to try this. Did you make or purchase your sauce?

    • Barb July 10, 2014, 10:32 am

      I cheated and used a jarred sauce… don’t judge me! 😉

    Those silly pups giving paws up all the time!

  • Annie June 30, 2014, 6:13 am

    Roasted is the best way to eat cauliflower for sure!

    Yum! That looks so good. Accidentally landed on your site and I am loving it.
    I think I will try to use my panini press instead of oven. We’ll see.

    Thanks for the post. Love your dogs too!

      Ooh, let me know how that works out! And thank you, they’re super sweet 🙂

    This post was a life-saver this weekend. I was trying to think of something that would go with corn on the cob, and I decided to make my cauli-steaks with BBQ sauce and charcoal seasoning. That probably sounds weird but charcoal seasoning is really good, adding lots of smoky flavor to foods for those of us who can’t grill. Anywho, the steaks came out great!

    I had to do a double take when I saw ‘steak’ in the title! Love how versatile cauliflower is!
