  • 2 large heads cauliflower
  • 1/3 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 large handful fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400F and line a baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Prepare cauliflower steaks by carefully cutting each cauliflower head from the top down in half. Then cut a 1 inch steak, including the stalk from each half. The stalks help keep the steaks in their uniform shape.
  • Drizzle with 2 tbsp of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Roast for 20-25 minutes and set aside.
  • Whilst cooking, make the wet wash with breadcrumbs.
  • For the wet wash, simply whisk the chickpea flour, water, and 2 tbsp of the nutritional yeast in a shallow bowl and set aside.
  • For the breadcrumbs, place the almonds, cashews, 2 tbsp of the nutritional yeast, 1/2 tsp sea salt and parsley in a food processor and pulse until fine in texture. Transfer to a shallow bowl.
  • Next, carefully place each steak in the wet wash and breadcrumbs and place back on the baking dish. Bake at 425F for an additional 20 minutes.
  • Serve with desired sides. (we suggest your favorite pasta dish)
  • Enjoy!
