✅Preheat oven to 425F.
✅Remove outer leaves from 1 large cauliflower. Trim stem, leaving cauliflower intact.
✅Slice cauliflower head through the middle. Slice 3/4 -inch steaks through one half. Repeat for other side. You should get 3 to 4 steaks.
✅Rub both sides of steaks with generous sprinkle of salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika. Set aside.
✅In a medium bowl: mix 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup cornstarch, 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 3/4 tsp smoked paprika, 3/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon fine grind black pepper, 1 teaspoons salt (or to taste). Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet.✅In a small bowl, add 3/4 cup non-dairy milk.
✅Brush cauliflower steaks generously with the milk. Use spoon to get into cracks.
✅Dip into flour mixture until fully coated on both sides, using a spoon to place flour into cracks. Shake to remove excess. (✅You can choose to pan-sear the cauliflower steaks before roasting. Heat oil in non-stick skillet and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until browned. Or roast the cauliflower without searing.)
✅ Place steaks on large non-stick or lined baking sheet. Transfer the coated or pan-seared steaks to the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
✅Remove from oven and flip. Brush both sides of non-seared steaks only with some of the remaining milk until no white floured parts remain.
✅Roast for about 10 to 15 minutes more, until cauliflower is fork tender. (Brush with more milk as needed.)
✅Broil the cauliflower for 2 to 3 minutes until browned and crispy. (Use leftover flour mixture and milk to coat remaining florets.)
