Having followed a low-carb diet for over 6 years, I’ve had the opportunity to taste lots of wonderful keto recipes but I have to say guys, these curried cauliflower steaks are up there in my top 10 low-carb recipes of all time.

As I sit here typing this, I can still taste the fragrant aromas of coriander, cumin and turmeric cuddled up against fresh ginger with lots of deep green, peppery olive oil. They are amazing. Even if you’re not the biggest cauliflower fan, please give them a try, I think I may even convert you!

Great as a low-carb side to pair with your favourite source of protein. I like to serve them with a roasted salmon fillet or roast chicken. I highly recommend my Low-carb Crispy Spatchcock Chicken. These two dishes are a match made in heaven.

I hope you enjoy these healthy Curried Cauliflower Steaks as much as I did.

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 °C/ 375 °F (fan assisted.) Remove the leaves from the cauliflower. Slice the cauliflower slightly off centre down the middle and slice into 3 steaks. Be careful when cutting as the florets are fragile.
  2. Transfer to a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.

  7. Place the curried cauliflower steaks on a plate and serve with sour cream, toasted nuts and fresh parsley. Optionally, serve with salad leaves or our Quick Green Salad, Avocado and Kale Salad, or Mediterranean Salad. Tastes best when served fresh but can be stored in the fridge for 3 days.

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.

This was great tasting and super easy to make.  II served it with the Italian egg drop soup.


Thank you Krissie!


I served the leftovers for lunch the next day, cold on a bed of spinach with a little olive oil and pepper.  It was absolutely amazing.  The flavors had really settled into the cauliflower in a nice, mellow way.  


In my top 10 of all time favourite low carb recipes. Thanks for sharing this one Martina. I could eat it every day.


I told you I love roasted cauliflower! This one is a winner!
