Air fryer Cauliflower Steak


  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • Olive oil
  • Seasonings of your choice (e.g., salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, thyme, rosemary)
  • Optional: lemon juice, grated parmesan cheese, or your favorite sauce for serving


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Wash and dry the cauliflower head. Remove any green leaves, but keep the stem intact. This will be the base of your cauliflower steak.

  3. Trim the sides of the cauliflower to create two large, even “steaks.” Each steak should be about 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick. The outer edges might crumble into smaller florets, which is okay.
  4. Brush or drizzle both sides of the cauliflower steaks with olive oil. This will help the seasonings stick and promote browning in the air fryer.
  5. Season the cauliflower steaks generously with your chosen seasonings. You can use a mix of salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, thyme, rosemary, or any other spices you like.
  6. Place the cauliflower steaks in the preheated air fryer basket. Be careful not to overcrowd the basket; you may need to cook them in batches.
  7. Cook the cauliflower steaks in the air fryer for about 15-20 minutes, flipping them halfway through the cooking time. Cooking time may vary based on the thickness of the cauliflower and the air fryer model you’re using. The cauliflower steaks are done when they are tender and have a nice, golden brown crust.
  8. If you’d like, you can squeeze a bit of lemon juice over the steaks or sprinkle them with grated parmesan cheese for extra flavor.
  9. Serve your air fryer cauliflower steak with your favorite side dishes or dipping sauces. Mashed potatoes, a simple salad, or a creamy garlic sauce are great accompaniments….
