Cauliflower Steak With Caper Dressing and Crushed Celeriac [Vegan]



Cook Time



For the Dressing:

  • A handful of fresh mint and coriander, chopped
  • Juice 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 pickles, chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1 turn black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, sliced finely

For the Cauliflower:

  • 1 small cauliflower, sliced into 4 chunky steaks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 head of garlic

For the Crushed Celeriac:

  • 1 celeriac, peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 3 cloves garlic sliced
  • A bunch fresh thyme, woody bits removed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Smoked sea salt or sea salt, to taste
  • A turn of black pepper
  • 1/2 cup water


To Make the Cauliflower:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F then place the cauliflower steaks and garlic on a large baking tray.
  2. Drizzle the cauliflower with the oil then bake for approximately 40–50 minutes. Ovens vary, so keep an eye on the cauliflower — it should be crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.

To Make the Crushed Celeriac:

  1. Add the oil to as large saucepan with the thyme, garlic, and celeriac. Cook on a medium heat for 5 minutes, then add the water and simmer, covered, for 25 minutes
  2. Turn off the heat and either crush the celeriac with a fork or pulse in a food processor a couple of times, if you would prefer a purée.

To Make the Dressing:

  1. Add all the ingredients to a jar, cover with the lid, and shake to combine.
