Cauliflower Steak with Lime and Coriander Dressing
I’m home alone this weekend as my hubby is in the mountains in France so it’s just me, the cats and some recipe creating.
This delicious recipe came to me the other day, I’m not quite sure where from but I was thinking that I wanted to create a new roast cauliflower recipe. I’m sure I’ve said many times before but I love roasted cauliflower, with its crispy charred outside and soft centre. I usually roast it in chunks but I thought it would be nice to try roasting it in steaks for a change. I think they look great and I like the idea of a cauliflower ‘steak’.
So originally I thought I’d make a tandoori dressing (which I’m still planning to do) when I remembered the amazing Delia Smith dressing I used to make quite regularly to pour over haloumi and thought it would be the perfect dressing for roast cauliflower. And it was! I’m really happy with this recipe – you’ve got to try it!
This dressing is so good. It has all the flavours I love in a dressing; sharp lime, vinegar and mustard, olive oil and garlic, capers and coriander.
I roasted one small cauliflower and ate it all to myself but this would also be great as part of a mezze with hummus, pitta’s and lots of salads.
