  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • fresh parsley for garnish, optional


  • Preheat oven to 450º F. Remove the leaves from base using a sharp knife. Slice cauliflower in half, then slice 2 steaks about 1” thick from each half. Mix the olive oil, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and chili powder in a small bowl.
  • Place cauliflower steaks on baking or cookie sheet and brush liberally with olive oil. Cook 15 minutes, then flip over. Cook additional 15 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.


  • Olive oil: Be sure to use plenty when brushing your steaks to make them tender.
  • Ingredient variations: Can use regular paprika instead of smoked.
  • Extra cauliflower: Save in airtight container or bag, make additional steaks if large enough, or roast with steaks and save for a snack.
  • Sauce options: Delicious plain, but try steaks with a side of ranch or even chimichurri.
