🥘 Ingredients You'd Need for Cauliflower Parmigiana recipe
- Cauliflower: I would suggest you choose a large Cauliflower to make this recipe.
- Olive Oil: I would recommend a good quality Olive Oil to make Cauliflower Parmesan. The oil will help the Cauliflower get crispy and golden brown in the oven. Without Oil, the Cauliflower would get stuck to the baking tray.
- Salt and Pepper: A little seasoning to get the Cauliflower steaks.
- Marinara Sauce: I prefer homemade Marinara Sauce. However, you can use store-bought Marinara Sauce as well.
- Mozzarella Cheese: I would suggest you use a good quality Mozzarella Cheese. And, make sure you shred your cheese at home.
- Parmesan Cheese: Parmesan cheese helps to get that salty taste on the Cauliflower steaks.
👩🍳 How to Make Roasted Cauliflower Parmesan Steaks?

🤔 How to Cut Cauliflower Steaks?
- Cut out the green leaves on the outside.
- Trim off the stem of the Cauliflower keeping the core intact.
- Cut through the middle of the Cauliflower this helps the florets stay together.
- Now cut out thick slices which are approximately 1 1/2 inch thick. The thicker the pieces the better it is.
- If you have some florets left then you can use them to make Cauliflower rice.
