Ingredients

Cauliflower Steaks

  • 1 head cauliflower, any color
  • 3-4 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Curry Dressing

  • 1/3 cup Mayonnaise sub plain cashew or soy yogurt for vegan
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp honey sub coconut sugar for vegan
  • 1 clove garlic
  • pinch salt
  • 2 cracks black pepper

Toppings

  • 1/3 c raisins
  • 1/3 c sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1/4 c parlsey, chopped

Instructions

Cauliflower Steaks

  • Preheat grill to medium heat, roughly 400 degrees.
  • Remove green leaves from cauliflower, leaving the core intact. Using a large knife, cut the heads into 3/4 to 1 inch thick steaks. Brush both sides of the steaks with oil, salt and pepper to preference.
  • Place cauliflower steaks on grill.  Grill for 8 minutes per side until tender and charred.
  • Serve cauliflower steaks on a platter and drizzle with curry sauce and garnish with raisins, almonds and parsley.

Curry Sauce

  • Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and whip until smooth. For a thinner dressing add 1 TBSP of warm water. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Notes

  1. We prefer 1 TBSP of curry powder but many people find this over powering. Start with 2 tsps and add more to your liking.
  2. If any florets come apart they can be cooked in a grill pan along side the steaks.
  3. When making this vegan we opt for cashew yogurt in place of mayo and a pinch of coconut sugar rather than honey.
  4. Dressing and toppings are not AIP compliant
Oven Instructions
  1. Preheat over to 425 degrees.
  2. Place cauliflower steaks on baking sheet. Cook 8-10 minutes per side.
  3. When just tender, turn on broiler and char the tops of the steaks.
