If you’re interested in adding more vegetables to your diet and trying something new and delicious – how about a cauliflower steak?
They are a healthy and tasty option for lunch or dinner, and can be either the main event, or an inventive side dish. This recipe serves two hungry people.
For the steaks:
olive oil and butter for frying
For the sauce:
8 baby plum tomatoes, diced
1 shallot finely diced
1/2 tbsp capers
a small handful of chopped basil
a small handful of chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/4 lemon, juiced
Heat the oven to 220C, cut into two thick slices from the middle of each cauliflower and keep the rest to eat later.
Heat a little oil and butter in a pan then cook the cauli on both sides until golden. Transfer to a non-stick baking sheet and season. Roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes until tender.
To make the sauce, mix all the ingredients with 5 tbsp olive oil and season. Take the steaks from the oven, spoon over the sauce and serve.
