Roasted Cauliflower Steak

The Easiest Roasted Cauliflower Steak You Will Ever Make.

Roasted Cauliflower Steak Recipe

If you are trying to eat more plants, then this roasted cauliflower steak recipe is going to become your best friend! I have been cooking with a lot of cauliflower lately, mainly because it is freezing in Australia right now and I love roasted cauliflower so much but also it has great health benefits!

This roasted cauliflower steak recipe is gluten free, dairy free, vegan and packed full of flavour. I am a big fan of using hemp seeds not only for their nutritional profile, but also to add a nice crunch to meals.

Teamed with a delicious lemony creamy tahini dressing, this is a great meal for just 1 or feeding the whole family.

Cauliflower Steak Recipe

Cauliflower Steak Recipe


  • 1 cauliflower (whole or half depending on how many mouths you are feeding)
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • ¼ cup hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup almond meal
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried chili flakes
  • Good big pinch of salt
  • Good big pinch of cracked pepper
  • ¼ cup olive oil

Tahini dressing

  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ½ lemon juice squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil or flaxseed oil
  • ¼-1/2 cup warm water
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 210 degrees fan forced.
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Cut your cauliflower downwards into thick steaks (if you have remaining florets that break off, don’t worry, you can bake these next to your steak).
  4. In a small bowl, pop your nutritional yeast in, then with the back of a spoon, gently crush into a fine flake.
  5. Add in the remaining ingredients (excluding the olive oil) and mix thoroughly.
  6. Drizzle the cauliflower steak with olive oil (or use a pastry brush to brush the oil across the cauliflower). Then massage in so it is completely covered with oil.
  7. After it is covered with oil, Sprinkle the “crumb” over the cauliflower steak until completely covered.
  8. Repeat on the other side. This process will be like an eggless schnitzel crumbing.
  9. Once covered, pop in oven for 20 minutes, then flip over and bake for 15-20 minutes on the other side, or until the stalk is tender and there is a beautiful golden crust!

To make the Tahini dressing:

The key to a good tahini dressing is liquid! Warm water actually!

  1. In a small bowl whisk all the ingredients together until you reach your desired consistency!
  2. Drizzle over and enjoy!
