How to Make this Cajun Roasted Cauliflower Steak-
Slice cauliflower into steaks. (do not make very thick or thin steak.)
Preheat air fryer to 380 F.
In a bowl mix some all-purpose flour and almond milk /milk of your choice. Whisk it to form a batter a little thinner than pancake batter. Do not make the batter very thin.
Mix panko bread crumbs with some cajun spice and keep it on a plate.
Preheat the air fryer to 380 f for 2 minutes.
Dip cauliflower steak into all-purpose flour batter.
Coat the drenched cauliflower steak with panko crumbs.
Spray oil on the sides of cauliflower steak.
Air fry them on 380 f for 10-11 minutes, till they are crispy and golden. Your time can be less than 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the steak.
I kept mine a little thick as it retains the shape better.
Turn it over in between.
Serve them with some avocado sauce.
