Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Steaks - Your new go-to side dish! Roasted cauliflower is the best/easiest way to go! So crisp-tender and perfectly seasoned!

​ I came to really enjoy cauliflower about 2 years ago.

It’s weird, I know.

Cauliflower was just never incorporated into our very Korean diet.

Broccoli, yes. Cauliflower, no.

I’m also pretty sure my mom had no idea what cauliflower was.

Yet now, I can’t be without it. I just can’t.

I just made a mashed version for Thanksgiving, which was probably the best mashed potatoes I have ever had in my entire life.

And I have a roasted cauliflower soup coming next week.

But for now, I’m having cauliflower steak every single day.

ONLY cauliflower steak. Maybe a donut for dessert.

But hey, it’s just that good.

The cauliflower. Not the donut.

    Excellent. I browned some panko in butter and put that on top after the parmesan for some extra texture.
    Served with spring mix and lemon vinaigrette

    This is the best recipe! I will definitely be making this again and again and again!

  3. Can’t wait to try this! Can I use fresh rosemary and thyme?

  4. This is one of the best cauliflower recipes I’ve ever made. I will say that I used only one head of cauliflower and twice the olive oil and spices. I would eat this as a meal by itself!

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    I might actually start eating this and only this every night. The first head lasted two nights, barely. I bought two more heads of cauliflower today. I don’t know what it is about the taste, but it’s satisfying my meat AND my bread craving.

    This was a great addition to our dinner. I served it with lamb chops and cheesy pototoe casserole. Yum.
    Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    All I can say is damn Delicious. I’m on a low-carb diet. And just tantalize my taste buds. Thank you for keeping us all in mind.

    Easy peasy and really good.  Didn’t have garlic so I used garlic salt instead and put extra Parmesan in!  Also sprayed it with spray olive oil.  Loved it!

    I had this as a main dish for a vegetarian dinner and it was AAMMMAAAZING. I used roasted garlic in the seasoned olive oil and it was delicious! The parmesan right at the end is such a nice touch!

    This was very good! Easy to make. The only thing for us was it was a bit salty. So I cut back on the seasoning and did not use salt on my second time making it. Turned out great for our taste buds!

    It’s so good there are no words. My tweak. Well I added cherry tomatoes a quarters red onion, whole baby bell as , carrots thick sliced and two zucchini cut into rounds. It was the full meal deal

      This was my first time eating a cauliflower steak and it was DAMN DELICIOUS!! I’m going to try so many different seasonings each time I serve this. Thanks for the recipes

  16. I made this for dinner tonight was awesome, to me, tasted better than a meat steak..

  17. Rated 5 out of 5

    Made this tonight. Family loved it! New favorite veggie side dish.

  18. Have made roasted cauliflower several times using different recipes. This one is a real winner. The parmesan at the end is a nice touch.

  19. Hi,

    Lovely seasoning mixture and thank you for the inspiring recipe.

    Question though – what size cauliflower heads did you use? I started out with two heads per the recipe (just medium size) and had only enough of the seasoning mix to cover one side of the steaks and pieces from just one head of cauliflower cut into ~1/2-3/4″ slices/pieces. I’ve reserved the remaining cauliflower for another meal. What’s now in the oven is closely placed on a very large baking sheet.

    Before starting the prep, the quantity of seasoning mix seemed pretty sparse considering the quantity of cauliflower but I went ahead. Thankfully I’m not preparing it for a group so it’s not a problem tonight, but I’d suggested adding a cauliflower quantity measurement to the recipe so others can better balance this recipe out without coming up short on the seasoning.

    Thanks again,

  20. 5 stars. The recipe was fantastic. The only thing I changed was the cheese to asiago romano parmesan blend. It went great with steak !!!

  21. OMG Chungah, I made this. We loved it. My 3 year old daughter gets crazy about this recipe. I make it once a week or even twice.

  22. Yummy simple recipe. I’m adding a little butter. YUM. 

  23. SO delicious and healthy! I recommend serving doused in marinara sauce over spaghetti!

  24. Do you cool anything for a side? What would go good with this?

  25. This was so good! I only had one head of cauliflower but keep the other ingredients the same. I left a little bit more of the stalk as I’d heard from friends that it all falls apart. I had 3 good steaks out of 1 head so I think it worked. Yum Yum. 

  26. I just started cooking with cauliflower so I need to try this

  27. Love this recipe ! I have been serving GP Cauliflower steaks for years! Also have breaded and fried them to get kiddos to eat them ! Not as healthy but it gets them a veggie !!!!

  28. Oh, how yummy! I’ve prepared cauliflower in a plethora of ways but never as “steaks” before! I like this idea better because grinding up cauliflower into a “rice” consistency is ridiculously messy #amirite. This recipe looks and sounds amazing!

  29. I think it would work better to brush the cauliflower with oil, then sprinkle with the herbs. I found it hard to spread the mixture as was directed.

  30. Yum. I love roasted cauliflower. Do you think this would work with broccoli as well?
