It takes just three easy steps to make these vegan-friendly cauliflower and broccoli steaks, drizzled in homemade Peri Peri sauce.
At just 84 calories per serving, these cauliflower and broccoli steaks are suitable for those on a calorie-counting diet. Follow our simple step-by-step to make homemade Peri Peri sauce to serve alongside these flavoursome chunks of vegetables. Chillies, garlic, red pepper, onion, lemon juice, and paprika give the Peri Peri sauce its sharp, spicy taste.
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.
