5 from 13 reviews

This cauliflower steak recipe from Queer Eye season 6 episode 3 is as tasty as a vegetarian dish can get. The base is just a slice of cauliflower with basic turmeric and salt seasoning. But don't be fooled, it has an impeccable taste thanks to the slightly spicy-sweet dressing. And the best part is that it’s very easy to make!



1 large head of cauliflower (about pounds)

¼ cup olive oil

2 tsp. ground turmeric

¼ tsp. kosher salt


3 tbsp. finely chopped tender fresh cilantro stems

2 tbsp. gochujang/kimchee base sauce

2 tbsp. fresh lime juice (from 1 large lime)

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 tbsp. honey

Pinch of kosher salt

For serving:

¼ cup Dried Cranberries

½ cup fresh cilantro leaves

3 tbsp. roasted salted almonds, preferably Marcona almonds


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Cut the cauliflower lengthwise into two or three ¾-inch-thick steak-like slices. 
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, turmeric and salt. Arrange the cauliflower steaks and pieces on a baking sheet, top with the oil mixture and brush it.. 
  3. Roast until golden and tender but not at all mushy, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a bowl, vigorously shake or whisk together the cilantro stems, gochujang, lime juice, olive oil, honey and salt until combined.
  5. Arrange the roast cauliflower on a platter and top with the dressing, dried cranberries, cilantro leaves and almonds.
