For a different take on cauliflower try these tasty cauliflower steaks. The humble cauliflower is a little powerhouse. This dish looks and tastes great.
1 cauliflower (will yield 3 thin or 2 thicker ‘steaks’)
4 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. pomegranate molasses
Juice of 1 lime
½ tsp. cinnamon
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 shallot, finely chopped
2 tbsp. flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 tbsp. pine nuts
½ pomegranate, seeds removed
Sea salt and pepper
Pre-heat the grill / oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6
Prepare the cauliflower by removing any outer leaves and washing well. Trim the stem end of the cauliflower and slice into ‘steaks’.
Mix garlic, shallots, olive oil, lime, cinnamon, pomegranate molasses, salt and pepper.
Place cauliflower on baking tray and spoon the dressing over the cauliflower.
Place under the grill, or alternatively fry in a pan to brown on each side before baking in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
Once browned, place on a serving plate and sprinkle over the pomegranate seeds, pine nuts and parsley
* Serve with quinoa, buckwheat or any other grain of your choice
** Use the leftover florets and turn them into cauliflower rice/refrigerate for another time.
