Cauliflower Steaks

Cabbage slices/"steaks" are also popular in this house. Finished with lemon salt pepper and oil.

 

A great pasta sauce is roasted cauliflower florets with a little chilli and seasoning mixed with kale and cooked cauliflower puree. Add some hazels or pine nuts, kale will wilt in heat of sauce and pasta. 

If you want more crunch (different type) you can add fried breadcrumbs .

I prefer this without cheese, others here prefer with.

 

Got a link for that veggy "bacon" @Ital

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. Liquid Smoke
  • Freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 300°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cut eggplant in quarters, lengthwise. Slice each quarter into long, thin strips.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, soy sauce, maple syrup, paprika, and liquid smoke.
  4. Place eggplant slices onto baking sheets and brush both sides with sauce. Season with pepper.
  5. Bake until eggplant is cooked through and beginning to get crisp, 45-50 minutes.

it's big the whole cauliflower meat substitute

 

Sorry @Ital if I come off as an ass but the food fad thing gets on my tit, every vegetable does the rounds eventually one way or another, then round again

 

I`ll be honest, I eat cauli on average 2-3 times a week, love it, I used to use it as a potato substitute, used to mash it with broccoli and parsley sauce,  but always had fish with it. That was a long time ago, never saw it as a protein replacement though

No worries at all. I've seen the photos  of the caulis you have grow and any time I've grown them they're so much tastier than anything I bought :)

Those recipes sound delicious. I'm not a vegetarian but I lived with my sister for a year, and she's vegan - she'd do all the cooking and I loved it. I have to say vegetarian/vegan food is actually fucking delicious when you know what you're doing. Might try that cauliflower thing, maybe sans kale @ramblingmadman

How can it even be called a cauliflower steak though, its just a fucking slice, but you can't charge silly money or mug people off by calling them a cauliflower slice.

I'm gonna start removing the hard bit inside a parsnip, slice it thin and call it parsnip bacon, then sell it to muggy hipsters in Shorditch in an artisinal paisley and seaweed roll, with mohair ketchup and dust salad for 9 quid a pop. 

Tell you what though, I've just started working back in Central London recently, after a period of not having to go into town for work. Fuck, its unreal. I went to Eat yesterday morning and because I've got long days at moment, I've been grabbing food where I can. I got cheese on toast and a cup of coffee. The cheese on toast was sliced white bread, with cheese and Marmite. It was £5.50 for the coffee and the cheese on toast. Im doing packed lunches now, I can eat like a fucking king for £5.50 with a packed lunch.

Its the price of convenience isn't it mate, but getting up half an hour a day earlier to make lunch could probably save you enough for a nice holiday every year. How convenient is that now?

My favourite cauliflower steak is baked in the oven with a tin foil seal in a marinade of tamari, crushed garlic, maple syrup, oil and some paprika. Then when the thick stem part is cooked enough (40min or so) into the frying pan to charr and up those steak and let that marinade stick to them. You can also use that left over marinade to make an amazing vegan peppercorn sauce with some brandy and non dairy cream. Serve with thick chips and onion rings. Delightful.

Yeah my mate made me cauliflower tortillas from cauliflower snow and egg whites.  They were awesome.

I've also been roasting tenderstem broccoli and kale.

Sautéed cauliflower snow with nutmeg and cumin is a winner for baked cod or scallops....
