Hearty, filling and tasty too, our cauliflower and broccoli steaks with Peri Peri sauce are a brilliant all-round vegan recipe. Plus, there’s plenty of Peri Peri sauce leftover. Serve it drizzled over halloumi, steak or use is as a marinade for chicken. We recommend making the Peri Peri sauce ahead of time – it will keep in the fridge for around a week. When cutting your cauliflower and broccoli, don’t waste any of the discards.

- For the Peri Peri sauce:
- 4-6 Bird’s eye chillies
- 5 large garlic cloves
- 2 Red pepper
- 1 small onion (around 70g)
- 1tbsp lemon juice
- 1tbsp olive oil
- 1tbsp smoked Paprika
- 1tbsp dried rosemary
- 1tbsp dried oregano
- 1tsp sea salt
- For the steaks:
- 2 cauliflowers and 2 broccolis, short thick stems are best
- 1tsp olive oil
Put the sauce ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Test the heat and add more chillies if liked. For a looser consistency mix in some water.
Cut each cauliflower and broccoli into three steaks around 1.5inch thick. Don’t throw away the offcuts of veg, simply freeze for another time or even better, blitz in a food processor and fry for a few minutes with a drizzle of oil to serve as a low-carb alternative to rice – this would go brilliantly with our dark soy cod skewers.
Once your barbacue is hot, cook for 3-4 mins on each side until charred and tender when you insert a knife. Drizzle over approx 1tbsp of the Peri Peri sauce per steak and serve straight away.
