This Cheesy Sheet-Pan Dinner Is the Only Way My Family Will Eat Cauliflower

This Cheesy Sheet-Pan Dinner Is the Only Way My Family Will Eat Cauliflower I’m crazy about roasted cauliflower—its golden edges, caramelized crevices, and deep, almost nutty sweetness. Most of all, I'm crazy about roasted cauliflower because of its versatility. One night I can toss it in earthy turmeric and roast it alongside sticky dates; the next night I can dunk it in tahini and shower it with bread crumbs; and the night after that I can nestle it with curry-rubbed chicken thighs and caramelized grapes. On its many merits, roasted cauliflower makes its way to my dinner table often. But my two children, who are always game to try new foods, have never taken a liking to cauliflower, no matter how I jazz it up.

Create a grain-free cauliflower couscous that’ s sweet, crunchy , and loaded with gut-healing nutrients. Bonus points for the gut-friendly turmeric ! Deliciously satisfying, this recipe offers a heaping dose of turmeric and natural sweetness to keep your sugars and digestion in check.

Sear the cauliflower steaks until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Bring together the ginger, cumin, turmeric and mix in a tablespoon of olive oil. Brush or spoon the mixture on the cauliflower steaks . Place this on the baking tray and roast for around 15 minutes, until tender.

Who has impeccable taste in graphic tees, a penchant for guacamole, a soul-piercing gaze and, as of today, a shiny new cookbook? Queer Eye’s resident food expert Antoni Porowski is who. Antoni in the Kitchen reads a lot like his memoir: Think healthy, approachable meals with a sprinkling of Polish-Canadian heritage and a dose of comfort food for good measure. Of course, we’re partial to the cauliflower steaks with turmeric and crunchy almonds. (C’mon, it’s cauliflower.)

“One day I picked up a head of cauliflower at the grocery store with no plan in mind,” Porowski writes, “just a bit of faith that my pantry staples back home would inspire. Indeed they did! First, some gochujang, the savory-sweet fermented Korean chili paste; Marcona almonds for nuttiness and texture; and sticky dates for their rich caramel sweetness.”

We love gochujang for its funky spicy flavor; it’s available at Korean markets, most large supermarkets and online, but if you can’t find it, Porowski says you can easily substitute sriracha.

“This dish is vegan,” he continues. “It’s great after a weekend of indulgence. Serve it with rice or your favorite grain and make it a meal.”

OK, Antoni. Don’t mind if we do.

1 large head cauliflower (about 1½ pounds)

¼ cup olive oil

2 teaspoons ground turmeric

¼ teaspoon kosher salt


3 tablespoons finely chopped tender fresh cilantro stems

2 tablespoons gochujang

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1 large lime)

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon honey

Pinch of kosher salt

4 large Medjool dates, pitted and thinly sliced lengthwise

½ cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves

3 tablespoons roasted salted almonds, preferably Marcona


1. Roast the Cauliflower: With a rack positioned in the middle, preheat the oven to 425°F. Remove and reserve any green leaves from the cauliflower, then trim and discard the rough part of the stem. Cut the cauliflower lengthwise into two or three ¾-inch-thick steak-like slices. The rest will fall apart, but that’s OK—it will still taste great.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, turmeric and salt. Arrange the cauliflower steaks and pieces (along with any leaves) on a baking sheet, top with the oil mixture and gently turn the cauliflower with your fingers to coat. Roast until golden and tender but not at all mushy, 25 to 30 minutes.

3. Make the Dressing: Meanwhile, in a jar with a lid or a medium bowl, vigorously shake or whisk together the cilantro stems, gochujang, lime juice, olive oil, honey and salt until combined.

4. Arrange the roast cauliflower on a platter and top with the dressing, dates, cilantro leaves and almonds.
