Roasted Cauliflower Steak with mashed Sweet Potato - healthy and vegan recipe

For such a long time I didn’t really pay attention to cauliflower. Maybe that was due to the fact, that I didn’t know all the different ways to prepare cauliflower and I wasn’t aware of all the variety of recipes for it.  Now cauliflower is regularly on our plates – in many different ways.

Today I would like to introduce roasted cauliflower served with some mashed sweet potato. Not only the bright orange of the mash and the white-greenish color of the cauliflower looks amazing together, it also tastes wonderful.

The cauliflower comes out of the oven full of flavor due to the aromatic parsley mixture. It balances pretty nice with the mashed sweet potato, which I pimped up with a dash of milk and mustard. I really like sweet potato, but sometimes it’s kind of too sweet for me. Adding some mustard really makes the difference and gives a super delicious  aroma.

Ingredients

For roasted cauliflower:

  • 1 cauliflower
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 1 handful fresh Parsley ( some extra for garnish)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Chili

Mashed Sweet Potato:

  • 3 Sweet Potato
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1 dash of milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Peel Sweet Potatoes, cut into cubes and cook until soft.
  3. Cut cauliflower into thick slices (about 2 cm) . Make sure each slice contains a part of the root (otherwise it’s falling into little pieces, which is still ok as you can use them the same way. You can put all the tiny pieces, which are too small for baking, into the potato pan to cook and use within mash.)
  4. Put cauliflower slices on a baking tray.
  5. Blend all the ingredients for the dressing (olive oil, garlic, onion, parsley, salt, pepper, chili).
  6. Brush cauliflower slices with half of the dressing.
  7. Bake cauliflower for 15 min. Then turn cauliflower slices, brush other side with remaining dressing and bake for another 15 min.
  8. Mash the soft sweet potatoes. Add mustard and dash of milk. Stir until well combined.
  9. On a plate arrange the mashed sweet potatoes and put a piece of cauliflower on top. Sprinkle with some fresh parsley and enjoy.
