Cut off the greens and the stem from the cauliflower. Hold your Cauliflower upright and cut 1-inch thick “steaks” from your cauliflower. I got about 4. You’ll have a few pieces that may fall off - you should definitely roast those too.
Mix the za’atar, lime juice,olive oil, sesame seeds, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Use a pastry or silicone brush each side lightly. Leave some of the mixture behind to put on it before putting in the oven.
Heat a pan for medium high with the 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Add the cauliflower steaks, pressing down and searing each side until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and sear the other side.
Transfer the cauliflower steaks to a silicone sheet or foil on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes until the cauliflower is tender but still slightly firm.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with more sesame seeds, a squeeze of lime juice and a second sprinkling of salt and za’atar. Top with chimichurri for an extra boost of flavour.
HOW TO STORE CAULIFLOWER STEAKSAllow to cool completely and store in an airtight tupperware container. Reheat by placing in your oven at 350 degrees until heated through. These Cauliflower Steaks do taste best fresh. I wouldn’t try freezing these Cauliflower Steaks as it would ruin the texture.RELATED RECIPES Sticky Spicy Sesame Cauliflower WingsRoasted Cauliflower
