Roasted cauliflower has to be one of our favourite no-meat treats midweek. Cauliflower gets a lovely nutty flavour when it is roasted so we like to add some turmeric to make it a warming yellow colour and add depth of flavour. We love this with our sharp and salty anchovy sauce and our savoury herb crumb on top. We honestly think this is a dish where you don’t miss the meat at all.
|1 head||Cauliflower, cut into 2.5cm thick slices|
|½ tsp||Fennel seeds, crushed|
|1 tsp||Cumin seeds|
Garlic cream sauce
- For the cauliflower steaks, heat the oil in a large fry pan on a medium heat. Add the cauliflower to the pan and cook until golden brown on both sides. Season with salt and pepper, repeat with the other slices.
- For the garlic cream sauce, heat the oil in a saucepan and add the garlic, onion and thyme. Cook until the onions are translucent. Add the cream, heat and reduce by half and season to taste.
- For the anchovy crumb, heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the anchovy and garlic and cook for 1 minute until the garlic has softened. Add the breadcrumbs and cook until they are golden brown, remove from the heat and stir through the parsley.
