Ingredients for 4 portions

Per portion: 2218 kJ / 530 kcal

  • 2 medium cauliflowers, leaves removed
  • 6tbsp Kikkoman teriyaki marinade
  • 3tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 red onions, each cut into 8 wedges
  • 225g block halloumi, cut into 8 slices
  • 3tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 2tsp sriracha
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 50g rocket
  • 4 sesame seed topped buns


Preparation time: 30 mins

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas mark 6. Line a baking sheet with foil.

Slice two steaks from the middle of each cauliflower making sure it is held together by the base so that you end up with 4 steaks (set aside the smaller parts to use in another recipe). Coat the steaks in 4tbsp of the teriyaki marinade.

Heat a wide frying pan with 1tbsp of the oil and fry the cauliflower steaks for 3-4 minutes on each side until deep brown (you may need to do this in batches). Transfer to the baking sheet and place in the oven for 10 minutes, until just tender. 

Meanwhile, add another 1tbsp of the oil to the pan and add the red onions. Cook for 5 minutes, until they’re beginning to soften, then add the remaining 2tbsp teriyaki sauce and cook for a further 2 minutes, until glazed. Set aside.

Wipe out the pan. Add the remaining oil and cook the halloumi slices for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.

Combine the mayonnaise with the sriracha and lime juice. Split the buns in half and spread some of the mayonnaise mixture over the bottom halves. Top each with a cauliflower steak, 2 halloumi slices, some of the onion and rocket then add the top of the bun. Serve with chips and salad, if you like.
