What is Cauliflower Steak?

Cauliflower steak is just a fancy name for a thick slice of fresh cauliflower. When you slice cauliflower into “steaks” and then roast them in the oven, the cauliflower takes on a tasty, nutty flavor that livens up the vegetable. Cauliflower steaks make an excellent main dish that even meat lovers will enjoy. It doesn’t hurt that cauliflower is deliciously good for you, too!

Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable, part of the broccoli, cabbage and kale clan. It’s been found to reduce cancer risk; glucosinolates, the compounds that give cauliflower its distinctive smell when cooked, help keep cancer cells from growing. Thanks to the high amount of antioxidants, cauliflower is also awesome at reducing inflammation.
Just one cup of cauliflower is packed with necessary vitamins and minerals. In fact, 73 percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin C is in a serving of cauliflower. And if you have issues with digestion, you might want to add some more cauliflower to your diet; glucosinolates are also excellent at protecting your stomach’s lining, preventing leaky gut and helping to detox the liver so that your body absorbs more of the nutrients you’re eating.
