Ingredients for Cauliflower Steaks

  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • Low-fat hummus


Ingredients for Whipped Sweet Potatoes

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 to a 1/2 cup of plant milk
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup



  1. Preheat oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Slice the cauliflower in half and then into 1-inch thick “steaks.” Leave the core in the middle.
  3. Spread a thin layer of low-fat hummus onto each steak.
  4. Place the cauliflower on to the covered baking sheet and cook at 375 for about 25-35 minutes until cauliflower steaks are tender and a little brown on the top.
  5. At the same time cook sweet potatoes in the oven for 45 minutes or until tender.
  6. When the sweet potatoes are cooked, take the skin off and place them in a bowl. Add plant milk and maple syrup and blend with a hand blender or potato masher like you would mashed potatoes.
  7. Steam your favorite greens (I used bok choy, kale, and collards for this). Top with coconut aminos.
  8. Assemble it all onto a plate.
  9. Throw a few pomegranates on top, but not necessary.
  10. Eat it all together, sweet potatoes, greens and cauliflower all in one bite!!
