Our 25 minute recipe
Cook the cauliflower and potatoes
Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.
Cut the cauliflower into 3cm thick slices. Rub two of the sturdy slices with olive oil and the LEMON & HERB RUB on both sides and place in a large baking tray and cook in the oven for 20 mins.
Boil the potatoes in a pan of salted water until tender.
Mix the MEDITERRANEAN DRIZZLE pot with 2 tbsps olive oil in a small glass. While the cauliflower and potatoes cook, move onto step 2.
Fry the onions for the mash
Heat a little oil in a frying pan and fry the onion for 6-8 mins over medium heat until golden.
Turn the heat down and add the SMOKY MASH MIX. Gently fry for 2 mins, then tip out the onions and spices into a small bowl. Wipe the frying pan to use again in a minute.
Prepare the charred lettuce
Drain the potatoes and mash them with butter, then mix in your spiced onions. Keep aside.
Heat a little oil in the frying pan over medium heat and cook the lettuce quarters for 2 mins on each of the flat sides. Flip them over to cook their outer sides for 1 min, then turn off the heat. They should be golden on the flat sides and softened, but still have crunch.
Serve the cauliflower steaks with spiced mash and charred baby gem lettuce. Pour the Mediterranean drizzle over everything, and serve with olives (if having).

The flavour combination was lovely especially the mash!! The cauliflower was still quite hard I would suggest wrapping it in foil for 20 then uncovered for 10 minutes. As a whole the very yummy!!

Wasn’t sure if I was going to like the addition of the cooked lettuce but it all worked really well. I did cook the veg longer than the recipe stated though.

Cauliflower needs a bit longer, and onions need to not be cut too stringy.
Kevin - Apr 10, 2019
I absolutely love this. The flavours are wonderful and combine well. The lettuce prepared in this way gives a very choi feel to the plate and you can't go wrong with roast cauliflower. I thoroughly enjoyed the mash with the smokey sauce. A simple, easy to prepare and very enjoyable meal.
