1 large head cauliflower, sliced lengthwise through the core into 3 ‘steaks’ with each steak halved (save loose florets for another time)
1 (15 oz) can of chickpeas drained, rinsed, & dried
neutral oil ( I used sunflower oil)
1 small lemon sliced
For the sauce:
2 tbl neutral oil
2 tbl vegan butter
1/4 cup flour (30g)
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 1/4 cup vegan ch’kn broth (sub veggie broth)
3 tbl lemon juice
1/4 cup capers
2 tbl fresh parsley chopped
2 tbl non dairy milk
🍋Brush Cauliflower steaks with 2 tsp oil. Drizzle oil over Chickpeas to coat, season generously with kosher salt/ pepper, set aside
🍋 Place steaks on a large parchment lined baking sheet with lemon slices, Leave plenty of room btw each steak. Bake at 450 F in a preheated oven for 15- 20 min, rotating tray half way through.
🍋 After 15-20 min mark, take out tray. Gently flip steaks & lemons, cauliflower should be slightly golden & charred in some spots. Add chickpeas to tray. Roast for another 15-20 min, shaking and rotating tray half way through
🍋 Once you added chickpeas to oven, start your piccata sauce. In a large non-stick sauté pan over med low heat, add oil & melt butter. Stir to combine.Then slowly whisk in flour. Cook flour till it reaches a golden color about 1 min.
🍋 Next add wine, broth, & lemon juice. Raise heat to med & bring to a simmer. Sauce will thicken & reduce approx 2-3 min.
🍋Lower heat add capers & parsley, stir till combined. Add a splash of milk if too thick. Season to taste.
🍋 Serve steak & chickpeas topped with plenty of sauce. Serve with mashed potatoes, crusty bread, pasta, or on its own.Enjoy!!
