Mastering Cauliflower Sous Vide

PREP TIME: 20 minutes
COOK TIME: 1-3 hours


  • 1 Large Organic Cauliflower, cut into 1 in thick steak cuts
  • 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro, Finely Chopped
  • 1 Tsp, Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
  • 1 Tsp Paprika Powder
  • 1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper Powder
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • Salt & Ground Black Pepper to taste

Dipping Sauce:

  • ¼ Cup Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • ½ Cup Tahini
  • 1/3 Cup, Filtered Water
  • ¼ Tsp Cayenne Pepper Powder
  • ¼ Tsp Salt
  • ½ Tsp Cumin Powder


  1. Begin by preheating your Vesta Precision water bath to 185 degrees F, an ideal temperature for achieving the perfect texture in your cauliflower sous vide.
  2. For the dipping sauce, combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth, adjusting any flavoring to your liking if needed. Place in the refrigerator to chill while the cauliflower steaks cook.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the extra virgin olive oil, cilantro, paprika, cayenne pepper, lime juice, and minced garlic to create a vibrant seasoning blend.
  4. Arrange the cauliflower steaks in a single layer within a 1 or 2 (1 gallon) vacuum pouch(es). Drizzle the seasoning blend over the cauliflower steaks, ensuring they are well-coated. With your choice of Vesta Precision's Vac 'n Seal, Vac 'n Seal Elite, or Chamber Vac Elite, seal the pouch(es) after removing as much air as possible.
  5. Submerge the sealed pouch(es) in the preheated water bath, cooking for 1 hour to achieve a tender bite, or extend to 3 hours for deeper flavor infusion.
  6. Once cooked, remove the cauliflower steaks from the vacuum pouches with care, as they will be hot.
  7. Heat a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Sear the sous vide cauliflower steaks for 1-2 minutes on each side until they develop a golden brown crust.
  8. To serve, plate the cauliflower steaks with a dollop of the chilled homemade dipping sauce. Garnish with additional cilantro or a sprinkle of paprika for a touch of elegance and enjoy your sous vide cauliflower masterpiece.
