Versatile cauliflower
can take center stage for dinner! Try these seasoned “steaks” for a dramatic
supper.

(Serves
4-5)

2 Tablespoons vegan margarine, melted

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Salt, to taste

1 head cauliflower

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment
paper.

     In a small bowl, combine melted
vegan margarine, olive oil, and all spices. Stir until well mixed, the texture
will be like a paste.

     Remove exterior leaves from
cauliflower. Slice through the entire cauliflower vertically, making it into 6
steaks, each about 1 inch thick. Smear cauliflower slices with spice paste,
coating both sides of each slice evenly. Place on prepared sheet pan.

     Bake 12-15 minutes per side,
flipping once during baking. Finished cauliflower should be tender and lightly
browned. Serve warm with your preferred vegan side dishes or sauce.
