Serves 4
Total Time
20 Minutes Plus 2 hours marinating
1 large cauliflower
Tofu marinade*
1 bag of pak choi
Sweet potato, baked
Red chilli
Step 1
Cut the cauliflower into steaks, taking care to keep them whole – they should be 0.5-1in thick.
Step 2
Pour the marinade over the steaks, making sure they are covered well. Leave overnight, or for at least 2 hours.
Step 3
Set the oven for 200ºC. When ready, heat a griddle pan until very hot.
Step 4
Carefully remove the steaks from the marinade, keeping the remainder for serving.
Step 5
Griddle the cauliflower until slightly charred (around 3 minutes each side).
Step 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.
Step 7
Scoop out the flesh from the baked sweet potato and place in a pan, gently warming through with a splash of olive oil.
Step 8
Remove the pak choi from the oven. Transfer the cauliflower steaks onto the baking sheet, and the pak choi into the pan.
Step 9
Cook the steaks for a further 3 minutes in the oven.
Step 10
Griddle the pak choi until golden brown.
Step 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.
