Flavorful slices of cauliflower roasted to perfection – resulting in a creamy interior and caramelized exterior.



  • 1 large cauliflower head
  • 1 Tablespoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 34 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Cilantro, for garnish


  1. To cut the cauliflower: remove green leaves and cut the stem just to the bottom of the florets. You want the stem to remain in tact so it holds your steaks together. Slice the short edges of the cauliflower off, to make an almost rectangle. Cut down the middle, and then cut each half into half to create 4 steaks. (1-2 inches wide depending on the size of your cauliflower).
  2. Pre-heat oven to 425°F. In a small bowl, combine all spices. Brush cauliflower steaks with olive oil evenly on both sides. Sprinkle spice mixture evenly across cauliflower steaks, rubbing in as needed. Roast steaks on a large baking sheet for 24-30 minute, flipping halfway between cooking time. When edges are crisp and the interior is tender when pierced with a fork, remove.
  3. Serve with a drizzle of cilantro mixed with olive oil, or just chopped cilantro, and rice or a side salad as desired.
