for the cauliflower:

  • 1 head cauliflower sliced
  • 2-4 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

for the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp distilled vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • Pinch red pepper flakes


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Once your cauliflower is sliced (see directions in post), place it onto a baking sheet and brush each "steak" thoroughly with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Place cauliflower in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cauliflower is golden brown on the edges.
  • While the cauliflower is in the oven, make the sauce: simply place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Serve cauliflower with chimichurri sauce and enjoy!
