Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Tahini Sauce

This recipe is a delicious and healthy way to enjoy cauliflower. Cauliflower steaks are roasted and served with a tahini sauce. The sauce is made with lemon juice, garlic, and tahini. You can also add other seasonings to the sauce such as cumin or chili powder. The steaks are best served with a side of roasted vegetables or a salad.


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup of tahini
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced

  • 1/4 teaspoon of cumin (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder (optional)

  2. Cut the cauliflower into 4 steaks. Cut the steaks from the centre of the cauliflower, so that they are about 1-inch thick.

  4. Place the cauliflower steaks on a baking sheet and spread the tahini sauce over them. Roast the steaks for 25 minutes, or until they are tender.

Common Mistakes
