Most delicious vegan cauliflower steak with cashew sauce for an easy and healthy weeknight meal. When the cauliflower is roasted, this healthy vegetable turns into a lightly caramelized cauliflower steak. The wonderful creamy, slightly spicy cashew sauce compliments the cauliflower beautifully.

  • Preheat oven to 425 F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Remove the outer green leaves from the head of cauliflower and trim the stem if you wish. Place the cauliflower upright and cut into 1 1/2-inch thick steaks.

  • Remove the foil from the cauliflower and roast for 10 minutes. Carefully flip the cauliflower steaks and roast until golden brown, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • While the cauliflower steak is roasting, soak the cashews in hot water for 15 minutes
  • Drain the cashews and add to a blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Adjust seasoning if needed
  • To serve, place steaks onto a serving plate and top with cashew sauce and fresh herbs if so desired
