Cauliflower steak

People who love food somehow end up talking about cooking wherever they are. It happens to me all the time. In fact, last week I met a few friends to talk about our latest tv series discovery —by the way,  Line of Duty ‘s last season is incredible! —, but we ended up discussing about whether I should or shouldn’t call steak to my delicious cauliflower!

Who decides? There’re tons of creative names in gastronomy, so creative that most of the time I wouldn’t have imagined in a million years what the main ingredient was in some of them. So, if I say “cauliflower steak” everyone will know what I’m talking about, right? Anyway, my friends were not very convinced, mostly because they love meat, but I know a lot of people out there prefer a nice piece of cauliflower to any chop of meat, just like me!

If you are a cauliflower lover, I bet you’ve tried it in many different ways: boiled, roasted, raw, stir-fried… This is one of my favourite recipe because of the delicious rich taste. Would you like to give it a try to this vegan steak? 😉
