I have been struggling with my weight, It goes up and down, year in year out. The older I get the harder the fight seems to be, so I decided to make a change. I have taken out most of the Carbs and pretty much all sugar in my diet.

The diet I am following is part of the Atkins diet part, diet for a diabetic. I am not diabetic, at least not yet anyway, I just have stubborn belly fat I can’t get rid of. From what I have researched one of the easiest ways to get rid of that stubborn middle fat is to get off sugar and the bad carbs and up your exercise.

Basically, I am addicted to Carbs and sugar and I need to reset my brain to think like a normal person instead of a Carb addict. Starting this diet has been life-changing for me. I am now super aware of the food I eat and how it will affect me.

The downfall of being on that limited of a diet can make meals very boring and repetitious. So I have been searching around for some great recipes that I can keep in my life from here on out. Check out my Low Carb | Paleo Pinterest board for more recipes.

This Oven Roasted Cauliflower Steaks recipe is one of my new favs! When I first made it, the taste reminded me of french fries. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I ate the whole head, I guess I really miss french fries, lol.

How to Cut Cauliflower Steaks

Remove any leaves from the bottom of the cauliflower. Rinse and place stem down on a cutting board. Start cutting 1-inch slices on one end and when you reach the center turn it around and cut the other side of the cauliflower head.

Cauliflower Steak Seasonings:

There are many different seasonings you can add to cauliflower to bring out the taste. My favorite way to eat this is with garlic and a little Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top! 

  • Garlic, minced or dry seasoning
  • Cheeses like: parmesan, cheddar and feta
  • Dry vegetable seasonings
  • Seasonings like: Old Bay or Emerils, jerk or curry
  • Sauces like: tahini, BBQ, and buffalo

Below is the basic recipe, you can add whatever ingredients you like to make it great! Let me know if you do something different! I’d love to give it a try!

MAKE AHEAD: Place them in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for 4-5 days. 
FREEZER: Place in an airtight container or freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. Since this becomes a soft vegetable after cooking the texture may change after freezing.

Roasted Cauliflower Steaks


  1. Soooo yummy! I added a steak to a larger pasta bowl that had some store-bought hummus as a base and some roasted pine nuts were placed on top of the cauliflower. Your recipe was divine and perfectly cooked by your time. I shared some of my “steaks” and everyone loved them. Well done!

  2. Hello! I’m confused on total cooking time and hoping you can clarify please. The instructions indicate bake 20 minutes then flip and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, yet the total cooking time indicates 20 minutes total.

    Looks delicious and I don’t want to mess this one up!

    Thank you,

    1. Hi Michelle,
      You need to cook them for 20 minutes and then flip them and cook for around 10-15 minutes to make them brown on the other side. They are done when they are fork tender. I will edit the recipe. Thanks, Kim

        Hi Kim! Baked them as per your updated instructions and holy moly were they ever delicious! Added a balsamic glaze as a finishing touch. Hubby and I devoured the entire head between the two of us. We will be adding this to our weekly vegetable rotation. So very yummy!

        Thank you for sharing!

        1. I’m so glad you liked them! I used this recipe instead of french fries when I was Keto dieting. Soo good!

  3. Well, so surprised by this cabbage steak recipe. Why? After 55 years of boiling the cabbage and having my entire house still smell bad two days after, I baked the cabbage in the oven, topped with fresh mozzzarella slices during last three minutes on the timer. Soooo delicious! Many thanks. I’ll keep following you.

  4. Loved the recipe used avocado oil instead of olive oil.

  5. I was just diagnosed with diabetes and my liver enzymes were up. I’ve never been a soda drinker or drink alcohol. On top of this, I now have to go see a Rheumatologist for an autoimmune deficiency disease. It is better to get a handle on this now rather than getting diagnosed like me. I thought I was healthy but yes. I have the belly roll and I hate it!! Best of luck to you! I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  6. Great ideas. So anxious to try this. Thanks

  7. I made this for the first time a couple of weeks ago! Only I used the whole head. Drizzled oil, added garlic ,black pepper,crushed rosemary and thyme. Now I want to make these cauliflower steaks! Hugs

  8. LOVE this idea! I’m still struggling to jump on the cauliflower train, but I might actually give this a shot. I try to limit my bad carbs too……..but my husband can eat them like candy, so it’s a sore spot for us, haha.

    1. It is really good I eat the whole thing by myself! Lol!

  9. Best new recipe ever! I’ve never known I could roast califlowers!

    1. Yay! Glad you tried it! I love them too!

    1. I hope you will try it! It’s my new favorite way to eat cauliflower! Thanks for stopping by!
