Ideal as a main course or side dish. The cauliflower steaks are light, easy to prepare and really tasty if accompanied with the right sauce. We suggest you a slightly spicy citrus version with raspberries.

Cauliflower steaks
For the baked cauliflower steaks with sesame breading and spicy dressing wash cauliflower, remove the leaves and cut into slices of approx. 3 cm thick without removing the stem, so that the slices remain intact. Then put aside. Preheat the oven to 190°C (hot air) and line a baking sheet with baking paper.
Break up the bread and put it in the mixer. Add salt and pepper to taste and mix to crumbs. Pour them into a small baking dish, add sesame seeds and mix. Put the eggs in another baking dish and beat them with a fork. First dip the cauliflower slices in the eggs one by one and then in the breadcrumbs with sesame by turning them several times and pressing well to make them adhere evenly.

Transfer them to the baking sheet lined with baking paper, sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil and bake for approx. 25 minutes at 190°C. Turn the cauliflower steaks halfway through cooking with the help of a spatula. Stick them with a fork to check if they are done. Remove the cauliflower steaks from the oven and serve them immediately with previously washed raspberries and the lemon and orange dressing.
Squeeze the juice of a lemon into a small bowl. Add the juice of half an orange, extra virgin olive oil and chili pepper to taste and mix well.
