Meaty cauliflower ''steak'' seasoned with a turmeric bean dressing (oil-free), roasted until tender on the inside with a golden brown crust on the outside. It’s cauliflower-sliced lengthwise to create ”steak" shapes that are seasoned and roasted until soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. That’s it! So simple and so delicious.

Cooking Time



For the Turmeric Bean Dressing:

  • 3/4 cup white beans, rinsed
  • 10 cashews (optional) soaked in warm water for about 20 minutes then rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Enough water for desired consistency
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoons garlic powder
  • Salt, to taste (optional)

For The Cauliflower Steaks:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into thick slices
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • Back pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin


  1. For the cauliflower steaks: Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut the cauliflower in thick slices, about 2 inches. This is the hardest part so try to be gentle while cutting to keep the "steak" shape. Sprinkle spices and seasoning on the cauliflower.
  3. Lay the cauliflower steaks on a lined baking sheet with parchment paper and bake for 30 minutes or until tender on the inside and crunchy on the outside.
  4. For the turmeric bean dressing: place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth and dressing-like. You can also use an immerse blender like I did.
  5. Adjust for any seasonings, I find that when I add more pepper or onion powder it brings out the flavors.
  6. When the cauliflower steaks are tender and crispy golden brown, serve on a platter with the turmeric bean dressing drizzled on top and served aside to use as a dip while eating.
  7. Sprinkle with some fresh herbs if you like.
