Cauliflower steaks with roasted red pepper & olive salsa
Why I Love This Recipe
this is a fiddly/ delicate dish that is delicious, flavorful and worth the gentle touch but well worth it (especially if you are trying to show off)
Ingredients You'll Need
½ tsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp olive oil
1 roasted red capsicum
4 black olives, pitted
small handful parsley
1 tsp capers - can also use anchovies or green olives
½ tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp toasted flaked almonds
Heat oven to 180 -200c and line a baking tray with baking parchment. Slice the cauliflower into two 1-inch steaks – use the middle part as it’s larger, and save the rest for another time. Rub the paprika and 1⁄2 tbsp oil over the steaks and season. Put on the tray and roast for 15-20 mins until cooked through.
Meanwhile, make the salsa. Chop the capsicum, olives, parsley and capers, and put into a bowl and mix with the remaining oil and vinegar. Season to taste. When the steaks are cooked, spoon over the salsa and top with flaked almonds to serve.

Hint: if you are feeling lazy cut the cauliflower into leaflets and cook them that way.
