I'd say these protein-packed cauliflower "steaks" are somewhere between a steak and a pizza.

However, what matters is not what you call them, but what their taste is, and I guarantee you that it is divine. It will make you see cauliflower with a different eye and taste it in a different, special way.

What ingredients will you need to make the most delicious, healthy cauliflower steaks?

A large cauliflower (which yields 4 cutlets and several smaller florets which you will make into cauliflower bites), all-purpose or oat flour, almond milk (or milk of your choice), breadcrumbs, spices (it's one of the secrets to the "steaks" become delicious).

A little later after the steaks and cauliflower bites have been cooked for a while you will need tomato sauce which you will prepare in seconds with ketchup, vegan sunflower protein Amino Animo which has no taste but adds nutritional value to food and spices. And finally, the grated cheese will make the steaks even better.

Tips and Substitutions

Instead of almond milk that I used you can use milk of your choice.

Oat flour can be substituted for all-purpose flour.

Instead of breadcrumbs you can use any grated nut such as almond, walnut, peanut, hazelnut or whatever you want and like.

In place of the Amino Animo Sunflower Plant Protein you can use any Amino Animo Plant Protein you like as they have no taste and will not change the taste of your food.
