Country fried cauliflower steak is the ultimate comfort food to enjoy. Fried to perfection, they are a great non-meat alternative if you’re vegan or looking to try something new. Smothered in a non-dairy country gravy and paired with mashed potatoes and steamed green beans, this dish will be a huge hit! For those of you that are not fond of gravy or are looking to create something else, I got you covered. These cauliflower steaks are great with marinara sauce topped with vegan parmesan cheese, like a cauliflower parm! Its delicious and another way to use this recipe.
1 large head cauliflower, stem removed and sliced
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. paprika powder
1 cup non-dairy milk
- In two shallow dishes, combine flour, cornstarch, and seasonings in one, mixing to combine. In the other, add non-dairy milk.
- In a pot filled half way with water, bring to boil with a pinch of salt, steam the cauliflower for roughly 4 minutes and drain on a paper towel afterwards. Slice into 4 steaks. Take cauliflower steaks and coat with flour, then into non-dairy milk, and finally flour, removing an excess.
- Heat a skillet over medium-high heat with oil to fry. Cook for roughly 3 minutes and flip, cooking for an additional 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels.
- Serve gravy over fried cauliflower steaks and garnish with parsley and side of mashed potatoes and green beans.
Chef’s tip: This cauliflower steak is also great for cauliflower parmesan! Just add your favorite tomato sauce and vegan cheese, broil and you’re done!
