This Coconut Basil Pasta with Pan-Fried Crispy Cauliflower Steaks recipe kind of happened on a whim – but I knew I had to post it because it turned out so delicious! I was craving a creamy pasta but didn’t want to deal with cashews. I wanted something super easy but extremely flavourful and herby. I had a package of fresh basil in my fridge, as well as a head of cauliflower I had to use up.
There are a few steps to this recipe, but it really doesn’t take long! However, if you want to make it even easier, you can use store-bought vegan chicken or cauliflower wings (Wholly Veggie makes good fried cauliflower).
For the “egg” portion of the cauliflower breading I used a powdered egg replacer (Bob’s Red Mill brand is my fav). But if you don’t have that, you can use a nondairy milk like coconut or soy instead – it won’t affect the outcome that much!
