Roasted Cajun Cauliflower Steaks

Keto Side Item Recipes > Keto Recipes

This cauliflower steak recipe is so great because it’s not cauliflower pretending to be rice, pizza crust or even mashed potatoes, but just being a deliciously roasted and seasoned version of itself!

Roasted Cajun Cauliflower Steaks

These cauliflower “steaks” are obviously not steaks at all, but rather large slices of whole cauliflower that are seasoned and roasted to perfection. The best part about roasting cauliflower in “steak” form is that the flat sides get a little crisp while the center is tender. The trick to making “steaks” is to remove the leaves from the head of cauliflower but keep the core intact to make sure they hold together. I like to make a single cut right down the center, then cut each half into 1-inch slices. I can usually get three to four good steaks from a medium head.

This recipe has a bit of a kick with a simple Cajun-style rub that can be used again and again on veggies, chicken, or beef! Sprinkle each steak with a little parmesan cheese and a squeeze of lime to really top them off!
