Ok so a steak that is a vegetable does sound a bit strange but it actually works! This lovely herby marinade packs a punch on the flavor front too. Serve as a side dish or a main on a bed of quinoa or rice.

Herby Cauliflower Steaks Recipe

What you need:

  • Large cauliflower
  • Olive oil


  • 1 shallot
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • ½ red chili – finely chopped
  • A handful of fresh chopped parsley
  • A handful of freshly chopped coriander
  • 125ml olive oil
  • 4 tsp dried oregano
  • 4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • Juice of a lemon
  • Salt and pepper

What to do:

  1. Heat oven to 180 degrees  / gas mark 4
  2. Blitz all the marinade ingredients in a food processor to a rough paste
  3. Slice the cauliflower lengthways into 1cm slices. – if cauliflower large should easily get 2 good steaks but maybe 3 to 4 depending on size  save the rest for another meal.
  4. In a frying pan heat the olive oil and gently brown the cauliflower 1 min each side.
  5. Transfer to a baking sheet and spoon the marinade over the steaks on each side, cook for 25mins turning half way.
