Cauliflower Steaks with Chimichurri and Hasselback Potatoes

Cauliflower Steaks with Chimichurri and Hasselback Potatoes

[Advertising: Affiliate Links]

For a long time I have eaten cauliflower only cooked or steamed. But today I am going to bake it. With a tangy marinade the sweet cauliflower turns into a delicious dish.

As a sauce for the cauliflower steaks, I decided to make chimichurri with parsley and cilantro. You are going to love that taste! As a side you will have corn salad with vegan buttermilk dressing and hasselback potatoes.

When you make the hasselback potatoes, make sure you don’t cut the potato through, but only 7/8 of it. I lay two chopsticks around the potato and thus the knife stops, before it cuts through the potato.

Put the potatoes some time earlier in the oven, so that the cauliflower steaks and the hasselback potatoes are finished at the same time. While they are baking, prepare the buttermilk dressing and the chimichurri.

Enjoy this fabulous dish!

I make the dressing and chimichurri in my Personal Blender. You can grind the chia seeds first with the grinder and then switch to the mixing tool to blend it. It's so easy! You can buy smoked paprika online.
