The Conscientious Cook: Soy & Sesame Cauliflower Steaks with Pak Choi & Sweet Potato |
Favourites 4
Total Time: 20 Minutes
Plus 2 hours marinating
Serves 4


  • 1 large cauliflower
  • Tofu marinade*
  • 1 bag of pak choi
  • Sweet potato, baked
  • Red chilli


  1. Cut the cauliflower into steaks, taking care to keep them whole – they should be 0.5-1in thick.
  2. Pour the marinade over the steaks, making sure they are covered well. Leave overnight, or for at least 2 hours.
  3. Set the oven for 200ºC. When ready, heat a griddle pan until very hot.
  4. Carefully remove the steaks from the marinade, keeping the remainder for serving.
  5. Griddle the cauliflower until slightly charred (around 3 minutes each side).
  6. While they are cooking, halve the pak choi lengthways and place on a baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and cook for 5 minutes.
  7. Scoop out the flesh from the baked sweet potato and place in a pan, gently warming through with a splash of olive oil.
  8. Remove the pak choi from the oven. Transfer the cauliflower steaks onto the baking sheet, and the pak choi into the pan.
  9. Cook the steaks for a further 3 minutes in the oven.
  10. Griddle the pak choi until golden brown.
  11. To serve, spoon the mash onto a plate, lay a steak on top of the mash and the pak choi to the side. Drizzle with the remaining marinade and sprinkle with chilli.
