Vegan Middle Eastern Cauliflower Steaks

Vegan Middle Eastern Cauliflower Steaks, Modern Food Stories, cauliflower steaks, food photography

These Vegan Middle Eastern Cauliflower Steaks are my new crush guys. Roasted in a super simple homemade spiced oil and served with a good helping of coconut yoghurt and a balsamic olive oil drizzle.

I love to serve these healthy cauliflower steaks with a side of protein. Some crispy tofu or baked chickpeas if you’re vegan or simple grilled salmon or chicken if you prefer.

These Middle Eastern Cauliflower Steaks are vegan, keto, low carb, whole30 and GAPS friendly. For an AIP version, simply leave out the paprika.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
