Easy Cauliflower steaks with Spiced Stir-fried Cabbage


This meal is easy to make and super healthy! Cauliflower steaks roasted with coconut oil is something everyone must try. It is delicious! Having it in “steaks” is just another fun way to present it. You can switch your oven to grill for the last five minutes of cooking it if you want the edges to go a nice toasted brown ( which I didn’t do on this day as my kids were hungry and pestering me for food!)


Cauliflower Steak

1 head of cauliflower

3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted


Caper Salsa

1 cup parsley roughly chopped

½ cup baby capers, drained

¼ cup olive oil


Stir-fried Spiced Cabbage

¼ drumhead cabbage

6 Brussels sprouts

2 teaspoons mustard seeds

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 tablespoon coconut oil

¼ cup shredded coconut




Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Spread half the coconut oil onto a baking tray.

Holding the cauliflower on the stalk, slice into thick one inch “steaks”. Drizzle the rest of the coconut oil over the other side of the cauliflower.

Cook in oven for 35 minutes, or until the sides are browning.

Meanwhile, mix the salsa dressing ingredients in a medium bowl and place aside.

Thinly slice the cabbage and Brussels sprouts. To serve it warm, wait until the cauliflower is almost ready, and then in a large wok, heat the coconut oil and mustard seeds for a couple of minutes. Add the sliced cabbage and sprouts and mix through the turmeric and salt to taste. Cook for around 3 minutes, until the mix is glazed.

Serve with the other dishes. If you need to make this meal more hearty, serve with a side of brown rice.
