Well that's just silly. The price, not the cauliflower steak.

I love making cauliflower steak.

Slice it, coat it with some olive oil and spices and bake it.

Huh, never thought of cooking cauliflower in steak form. I'll have to give it a try.

Cauliflower is so delicious and versatile. Roast for finger food; puree as base for dairy free creamed spinach (or other creamed foods); puree and add to mac and cheese to thicken in a healthy way. It's very forgiving in taste and is imperceptible in most recipes when used for its texture.

@flashflood_29: I used it as a meat substitute in enchiladas and loved it.

Umm, I don't get it. The link just goes to a twitter account that's protected. I hope that's not a bad sign.

To answer the question; I like cauliflower, so if someone cooked it to pretend it's a steak I would definitely give it a try.

Cauliflower is the worst vegetable. It has no real flavour and you need to add other things to it just to make it tolerable. Eating cauliflower is like eating crunchy paper.

It's not really a pretend steak, as the taste and texture are obviously very different. It's just a thick cut of cauliflower with some spices. Delicious, but not trying to be something it's not.

Cauliflower is a global atrocity masquerading in Brocolli’s shoes.

I find it sort of hilarious that this has blown up so much, even if it is stupid to pay £2.50 for something you could pretty easily make 4 of yourself for £1.

Like, is it really any more ridiculous than buying, eg, carrot batons at £2.13/kg when loose carrots cost 60p/kg? That premium for convenience tradeoff isn't new. I'm not sure this is even the most ridiculous example of it.

Oh, I didn't mean that as a slight against the food or the people eating it. Sorry if it came off that way. It sounds really good steak or no steak.

Yep, that's a really stupid twitter discussion. I occassionally like getting a taste of that drivel. Should be good for at least a year now.

I like how advertising tries to sell us anything.

I remember the first Robin Williams comedy album, "Reality... What A Concept" (1979), he said, "…when I wanna blow a buck on a bottle of water, I buy Perrier!" I'm sure he would have something pithy to say about the Raw Water movement, my less pithy take is raw water is 'raw sewage' with a markup.

Haha, no worries. Didn't come off that way at all! Now that I think of it, my post was pretty stupid and unnecessary, as hopefully nobody would think that a cauliflower steak would taste like or have a similar texture to a real steak. I guess, as a vegetarian, I just assume omnivores might assume anything with "steak" in the name would be an imitation beef steak, which is obviously not the case.

I do enjoy some cabbage steak, even though I don't care for cabbage in other forms. Might have to give this a try.

It's silly to me to pay 3 times the cost for a fifth of an item, but there are plenty of people that have either little time or little knowledge of food prep whom have the means to pay for the convenience. Or maybe they just have a sharp enough knife that's actually dull and instead of making neat steaks, you end up with fleurettes all over the kitchen. It's more convenient to just buy precut things than spend the money on a good knife and learn how to maintain it.

Currently pretty obsessed with cauliflower, which as a former meticulously picky eater is perhaps the most shocking progression of my journey through eating yet! I'd love to try this; my current favorite food are some cauliflower "wings" in a thai sauce at the bar down the street.

I had cauliflower steak one time at a restaurant with other roasted vegetables off the vegetarian menu, not bad, and I'll get buffalo cauliflower whenever I see it on a menu. You'll never confuse it for a boneless wing, but when fried or roasted and buffalo'd it is a pretty good imitation.

@nodima: Hell yeah, cauliflower nugs done up like wings are a dandy thing.

My personal go to for cauliflower is to take a whole damn head of it, mix together greek yogurt with cumin, cayenne and lime, lather that shit all over the top, and roast it for about 40 minutes. It's good enough to impress people coming over, and basically idiot proof to make.

Our Marks and Spencers moved out of the city. This is why they fail. Plus it's Tesco Town.

I mean, someone's gotta pay the person who sliced and packaged the cauliflower steak.

Also, roasted cauliflower is the best! Can't say I've sliced it as a steak.... yet.

If a Cauliflower Steak is just a seasoned and cooked slice of cauliflower, if you sliced and seasoned a carrot would those become little Carrot Steaks?

Cauliflower is absolute garbage, but I had some cauliflower tempura recently and it was actually ok.

I like cauliflower just fine. As a side dish.

I clicked this thinking it was going to be some kind of tasty beef steak with cauliflower recipe. So much disappointment.
