Pan-fried cauliflower steaks

Serves 4
Cooks in 15 - 20 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Dame Mary BerryStarter


large cauliflower 
2 tbsp sunflower oil
A knob of butter
Ground cumin, for
Salt and freshly ground
black pepper
To serve
1–2 tbsp chopped parsley
1 quantity of Mustard Sauce


Remove any outer leaves and cut the cauliflower lengthways through the root into slices about 1.5cm (5 8in) thick. You will get about four whole slices from the middle of the cauliflower and some smaller florets from the edges.

Heat the oil and butter in a large frying pan. When the butter has melted, add the cauliflower pieces, season with salt and pepper and add a good sprinkling of cumin. Fry over a medium heat for about 8 minutes until tender and golden brown. You will need to do this in two batches, turning over with a fish slice or spatula halfway through.

Transfer to a serving platter, sprinkle with parsley and serve with the mustard sauce.
