Meaty cauliflower ”steak” seasoned with a turmeric bean dressing (oil free), roasted until tender on the inside with a goldenbrown crust on the outside.


  • 3/4 cup (125 gr) white beans
  • 10 cashews (optional) soakes in warm water for about 20 minutes then rinsed and drained
  • 1 tsp mustard, medium strong
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • enough water for desired consistency
  • 2 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbs onion powder
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • Salt to taste (optional, I didn’t use it)
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into thick slices
  • 2 tbs onion powder
  • black pepper to taste
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp cumin


  1. For the cauliflower steaks:
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
  3. Cut the cauliflower in thick slices, about 2 inches. This is the hardest part so try to be gentle while cutting to keep the “steak” shape. Sprinkle spices and seasoning on the cauliflower.
  4. Lay the cauliflower steaks on a lined baking sheet with parchment paper and bake for 30 minutes or until tender on the inside and crunchy on the outside.
  5. In the meantime.
  6. For the turmeric bean dressing:
  7. Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth and dressing-like. You can also use an immerse blender like I did.
  8. Adjust for any seasonings, I find that when I add more pepper or onion powder it brings out the flavors.
  9. When the cauliflower steaks are tender and crispy golden brown, serve on a platter with the turmeric bean dressing drizzled on top and served aside to use as a dip while eating.
  10. Sprinkle with some fresh herbs if you like.


For a thicker dressing add cashew nuts.
For a thinner dressing add some water.
