Who says vegetarians should miss out on steaks with creamy mushroom sauce? Just like ordinary steaks, you can toss these cauliflower steaks on a hot grill or griddle pan and have dinner ready in a jiffy. Cauliflowers have a mellow flavour that allows you to basically marinate with whatever you like. One of my favourite simple marinate which I’ll be using in today’s recipe, is cumin and coriander olive oil. Both herbs which complement one another nicely and gives the cauliflower steaks an earthy fragrant and heat which is simply delicious.
No steak is complete without a flavoursome sauce to complete it. For our cauliflower steaks today, I decided to master a classic; creamy mushroom sauce. Creamy mushroom sauce is just one of those sauces if made right, you can’t get enough of and will eat with practically anything and everything. I love having this sauce with pastas, roasted vegetables, hot chips and lots more. Just tweak this mushroom sauce recipe with some extra herbs and spices depending on your dish.
Another touch I like to add to my cauliflower steak dish is a side of spicy roasted chickpeas. These smoked paprika and hot cayenne pepper roasted chickpeas adds a nice crunch and hit of spice, that is if you can resist pecking on them before your dish hits the table.
If you have a handful of cherry tomatoes to spare, like I always do from our few potted tomato plants on the deck, just toss in a few on the sides of the griddle pan while grilling the cauliflower steaks. These gorgeous red cherry tomatoes adds a burst of colour, flavour and juiciness to your cauliflower steaks. This simply delicious dish is all you could possibly ask for in an absolutely satisfying dinner from the flavoursome charred bits of the cauliflower to the richness of the mushroom sauce to the crunch of the chickpeas and the juiciness of the tomatoes, this dish is simply delicious.
