Suya-spiced Cauliflower Steaks

Because Yaji is bae. And is delicious on almost every single thing – even white chocolate. Which is chocolate (argue in your back garden)!

I’ve wanted to make cauliflower steaks since I came across the stunning recipe on Food52.

And I did. And made it tres Nigerian with the addition of suya spice – yaji. What the yaji does is contribute peanutyy, spicy, smoky flavours.

Here’s what you do.

Heat up your oven to 180°C, about 350°F.

Set your cauliflower right way up  and then with a sharp knife, cut two 1-inch-thick slices of cauliflower from top to bottom.

_DSC2042_DSC2043 Brush cauliflower steaks with some oil – I used vegetable (?) and sprinkle yaji on both sides. _DSC2045_DSC2051 Be sure to admire the beauty of brown and tan against creamy white.       _DSC2060 Heat up a skillet – any chance to bring out my cast iron is great :). Add cauliflower steaks to skillet and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. _DSC2061 Once a nice crust has formed, remove from stovetop and set the skillet in the oven. Bake steaks until tender, about 10 minutes._DSC2064 I served mine with zobo pepper sauce. Oh my, what a delight. I’m thinking it would work great with my scent leaf dip. Will definitely be making this again!
