An amazing plant-based, vegan-friendly, soy-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free Fried Cauliflower "Steak" recipe that makes approximately 4 servings, taking about 10 minutes to prepare, with an additional 20 minutes of cook time.
Before my journey of becoming plant-based, I was never a fan of steak, so when I told my dad I was going to try making cauliflower steak, he was baffled. The goal when I made this was not to have my cauliflower taste like a meaty steak but to have it have a delicious flavor that my family could enjoy without the dangers of animal products.
This recipe was inspired by One Great Vegan, and with just a few minor tweaks, her magnificent cauliflower steak was a little bit more to my liking! I think my favorite part of this cauliflower steak recipe is that the acidity of the pickle juice makes the hot sauce more palatable, especially for someone who has become very sensitive to spicy foods post-covid.
Of course, the day I tried this for the first time, I just so happened to enjoy it along with Parmesan-Ranch Crusted Potatoes and Strawberry-Feta Salad, which were also first-time recipes that came out remarkable and worthy of sharing with you all. The flavors of all three recipes really brought together the flavor palette and were absolutely delicious.
