Cauliflower “steaks" are delicate, so leave the stem intact to help them hang together and handle gently at all stages. We've recommended a shawarma spice blend, but the lovely thing about cauliflower is that it plays well with all manner of spices. Use any salt-free spice mix you enjoy.
1 head cauliflower, rinsed, green leaves removed and sliced thick
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. maple syrup
2 1/2 tsp. shawarma spice blend
