Cauliflower Steaks with Garlic Caper Sauce, simple to prepare yet tastes so deliciously complex it makes your palate dance! So easy and too good to be true–only it is!
This dish looks like one of those dishes that requires an investment of a couple of hours in the kitchen. After tasting it, your guests are sure to have visions of you spending the afternoon waiting for all of the flavors in this sauce to reach their moment of collective enlightenment. Not so! These steaks brown in a matter of minutes, after which they are transferred to a baking sheet and placed in the oven for 10 minutes. While the steaks are baking you make this fabulous sauce in 5 minutes! What’s not to love? A beautiful dish with scrumptious flavor and all of the nutrients that are delivered by “super veggie” cauliflower. To read about all of the wonderful vitamins and minerals that cauliflower will bestow upon your body, check out my gluten-free and vegan recipe for Cauliflower “Egg” Salad. If you want to add a new healthier twist to an Italian classic why not try my Creamy Vegan Alfredo. Come to think of it, I have several cauliflower recipes!
Using the two large center cauliflower steaks, this dish can easily stand as a main course or use smaller steaks for a tasty side. It’s a win-win!
Some notes for you —
Serving suggestions: The sauce yields about one and one half cups. If you choose to cook the entire large head of cauliflower you may want to double the sauce recipe.
On a spicier note: I did not prepare mine in a spicy manner, but I think if you’d like to kick up the spice a few red pepper flakes added to the garlic and capers during sautéing would be divine!
