Main ingredients

  • Cauliflower. You can get two “steaks” out of each cauliflower head. Any leftovers can be used for other recipes.
  • Mayo. You can use store-bought or homemade mayo, but the homemade is so easy and worlds better in flavor.
  • Garlic. Use fresh cloves if you can for the best flavor. Garlic powder can be used instead though.
  • Sriracha. Use as much or as little as you like.
  • Salt. To taste.

How to make Creamy Cauliflower Steaks

1. Cut off the bottom stem end from the cauliflower and stand it up on the cutting board. Use a large, sharp knife to trim away the sides, then cut the remaining head into 2 or 3 1-inch “steaks.” How many you get will depend on the size of your cauliflower. Reserve the sides for another recipe.

Tips for the best Creamy Cauliflower Steaks

  • Make a flat base for easier cutting. Cut off the bottom stem end from the cauliflower so that you create a flat base and can stand the cauliflower up on the cutting board.
  • Cook them to your liking. Whether you like them soft, a little brown, or with some crunch, you can cook these cauliflower steaks as much or as little as you like.
  • Make sure they don’t burn. Keep an eye on the cauliflower because it can brown quickly and easily burn. When they start browning, they’re done.
  • Cut the steaks thick. As these should look like steaks, cut them on the thick side. This will also keep them from falling apart as they cook.

Variations to this Recipe

  • Add fresh herbs. Dill, parsley, or cilantro are all great herbs to add to these Creamy Cauliflower Steaks for extra flavor.
  • Make them extra spicy. If you add more Sriracha or some red pepper flakes, you can up the heat level on these steaks.
  • Substitute another sauce. You can also make this recipe with chermoula sauce, tzatziki, pesto, or roasted pepper sauce.
  • Add some char. Broil these steaks for a few minutes to get a little char on the top for a tasty finish.
