Cauliflower steaks -

Red pepper pasta-


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Slice a head of cauliflower into 1-inch "steaks." Drizzle olive oil over each slice, use your fingers to rub it in all the cracks and crevices. Sprinkle garlic powder, salt, and pepper on both sides. Put the seasoned steaks on a parchment-lined tray.
  • Roast for 30 minutes, flip, and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and squeeze the juice from 1/2 of a lemon over the cauliflower.
  • Roast for 2-5 additional minutes, or until the edges are browned and crispy. Squeeze the remaining lemon juice over the cauliflower steaks and serve hot.
  • Red pepper pasta-
  • Drain the water/oil from the jar. Add the peppers, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and maple syrup to a high powered blender.
  • Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Pour the sauce over hot noodles and mix to coat each noodle.


  • Make sure to watch the cauliflower steaks while they’re roasting. You want them to be brown and crispy on the edges, not burnt.
  • You could substitute tomato sauce instead of the red pepper sauce.
  • If you have time to roast a head of garlic, you could mash it and rub it all over the cauliflower steaks instead of using garlic powder.
