Cauliflower steak

I cannot believe the flavours in this dish! 
There are almost 3 years since I was guided by the Mediterranean Diet in my daily food and every time I try a new recipe, I am impressed by so many flavours that I have not known before.

This is a nice replacement for a steak, for those who are vegetarian or vegan. I am not but this doesn't mean I cannot enjoy these delicious dishes.

It is super easy to make and a very healthy meal alternative.
The original recipe adds an extra salad to it that can even improve the flavour with an acidic note.  I wanted to simplify it, so I adapted a bit the recipe to my taste. (the link to the original recipe you can find it at the end)


  • 1 cauliflower head
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • pepper
  • parsley for decoration
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 70g tablespoons of olive oil (or 5 tablespoons)
  • the juice of one lemon
  • salt
  • pepper

  1. Prepare the sauce by blending all the sauce ingredients.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into slices. You can get 2 big slices from the middle and the rest probably you'll have it in small pieces.
  3. Prepare the oil to brush the cauliflower by mixing the olive oil with paprika, salt and pepper. Brush the cauliflower slices and pieces on all the sides.
  4. Fry it in the air fryer for 8 minutes or in a non-stick pan until it gets lightly golden brown. Half time you can turn them on the other side.
  5. Serve it by putting the sauce on the bottom of the plate and the cauliflower on the top. 
  6. Sprinkle parsley over for decoration.
