Cauli Steaks
For the steaks…

Preheat the oven the 200 degrees Celsius. Pick a dense cauliflower so it keeps better together. I usually get 2 the 3 large steaks by cutting the cauli through the middle. You are aiming the make them about 1 cm think. Pour a coconut milk on one plate and add some salt, pepper the the milk. On another plate mix flour, coconut and panko crumbs. One by one coat the cauliflower with coconut milk, lift straight into the dry mixture. Turn it around until it’s covered with the panko mixture and place on a non-stick tray. For extra crunch you can spray the steaks with some oil just before placing in the oven. Bake in the oven for 15- 20 min and turn half-way.

Serve with the delicious sauce, steamed or cooked rice and sprinkle of fresh coriander leaves. Bon Appetite!
