Cauliflower Steaks with Puttanesca Sauce (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

Who needs “steak” when you can feast on a steak of savory, golden roasted cauliflower? Cauliflower is all the rage, and I just love this preparation style. Simply slice a large head of cauliflower into vertical slabs or “steaks,” drizzle with olive oil and vinegar, sprinkle with seasoning salt, roast in the oven, and top with a simple, rich puttanesca sauce. These Cauliflower Steaks with Puttanesca Sauce are beautiful, delicious, and based on just a few easy ingredients.

Step-By-Step Guide:

Trim a large head of cauliflower.
Slice cauliflower head vertically to create thin “steaks”. Drizzle with EVOO, vinegar, and sprinkle with seasoning salt. Roast at 400 F until golden brown.
Heat marinara sauce, EVOO, capers and dried basil to make a Puttanesca sauce to serve with the cauliflower steaks.

Puttanesca Sauce:


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. To make cauliflower steaks: Trim cauliflower leaves and stem and place the whole head on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, slice vertically into the cauliflower to create thin (about ¼-inch thick) “steaks.” Some crumbling of cauliflower will occur, so reserve the crumbled cauliflower (don’t toss it, it’s good roasted too!). Place cauliflower steaks and crumbled cauliflower onto a baking sheet and drizzle with 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil and vinegar. Sprinkle with seasoning salt. Place in oven on top rack and roast until golden brown (about 15-20 minutes).
  3. Meanwhile, make puttanesca sauce by mixing marinara, 1 teaspoon olive oil, capers and basil in a small pot over medium heat, until bubbling and warm.
  4. Serve each cauliflower steak with puttanesca sauce. Makes 6 servings (1 cauliflower steak or ½ cup crumbled cauliflower with about 3 tablespoons sauce).
