Vegan Cauliflower Steak with Cashew Sauce

Roasted cauliflower steak turns into a delicate vegetable that is slightly caramelized. The wonderful creamy slightly spicy cashew sauce complements the cauliflower beautifully. This is a great gluten free dish for a summery meal or accompanying meat or chicken dishes. The sauce tastes just like creamy Parmesan cheese garlic sauce, you will love it! This comforting gluten free vegan meal is healthy and super easy to make


1 large solid cauliflower head (should make 4 x 1-inch steaks)
2 Tbsp. extra olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
½ cup raw unsalted cashews
3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
4 Tbsp. water
1 tsp. GF ground cumin
1 garlic clove, minced
Pinch of GF cayenne pepper (optional)
¼ tsp. sea salt


Preheat oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Peel the leaves off the cauliflower and remove the stem. Place the cauliflower upright and cut into 1-inch thick slices. Save the ends for soup or stir-fries
Place cauliflower steaks on prepared baking sheet and brush each side with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes, then carefully turnover the cauliflower and roast for 10 more minutes
While the cauliflower steak is roasting, soak the cashews in hot water for 15 minutes
Drain the cashews and add to blender. Add balance of ingredients and blend until smooth. Adjust seasoning if needed
To serve, place steaks onto a serving plate and top with cashew sauce
