  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • Pinch of salt and black pepper
  • Step 1 Pre-heat an air fryer to 400F with a total cook time of 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can bake this at 400F for 15-20 minutes.
  • Step 2 Wash and dry the cauliflower. Remove the green leaves from the cauliflower, save this to cook another time. Cut the cauliflower in half in the center. Holding one-half of the cauliflower cut off 1/2 inch until you get an even 1 inch cauliflower steak. Set the remaining crumbling cauliflower pieces on the side. Repeat on the other half.
  • Step 3 In a small bowl, mix olive oil, paprika, turmeric, salt and pepper. Use a pastry brush to coat both sides of the cauliflower steaks as well as the cauliflower pieces.
  • Step 4 Lay the cauliflower steaks and cauliflower pieces on the air fryer tray and insert in the air fryer. Cook for 10 minutes, flipping halfway.
  • Step 5 Serve with my herb sauce and enjoy!
