  • 2 heads of cauliflower
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 tbsp. ground flax seeds or breadcrumbs
  • 3 tbsp. za'atar spice
  • 1 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. sea salt


  • Remove the cauliflower stems and leaves. Cut each cauliflower head down the middle. Then, move the knife about 1 ½ – 2 inches to the left, and cut the steak. Do the same on the right. (each head makes 2 steaks). Reserve the remaining cauliflower for future use.
  • Lay the steaks on a baking sheet and drizzle them with olive oil. Then, sprinkle on the spices. Make sure all of the spices stick to the steaks, so they can bake in and give the cauliflower the best flavor.
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, flip carefully, and then bake for another 5-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the steaks. In addition, you can broil them for about 2 minutes, in order to get a beautiful golden crust.
  • Serve as a side to any dish. It tastes great with Creamy Tahini Sauce



This spice adds the most amazing flavor! It can be found in large health food stores, or on Amazon.com. I buy this one. It’s very versatile and tastes great on any roasted vegetable or meat, so you don’t have to worry about having any leftovers.
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ⅛ cup water
  • ⅛ cup lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
Mix the above ingredients well.
