This recipe was amazing – and the red pepper a ‘must’! Wonderful flavors, it all came together nicely. And my cauliflower was in pieces, not steaks, but it all tasted fine! And I agree, a doubling of the water/tamari mix!
This was really good! I agree with the others in doubling the tamari sauce… I’ll probably slice more onions as well because I LOVE onions. Lastly, I think it could have used a pinch of salt, but it was delicious none the less!
This will definitely be a repeat!
Eileen needs to use nutritional yeast, not brewer’s yeast. They are totally different.
Just excellent. Like Nikki suggested, I doubled the tamari/water mixture but left everything else exactly as is, and this is one of the most impressive meals I’ve made so far a year into trying out FOK recipes. Absolutely thrilled to add this one to our rotation, particularly for the fall and winter months with that lovely festive nutmeg.
Flavor was good, but the mix of flour, brewers yeast and almond milk made a thick clump of paste. There was no “whisking it.” When I added the clump, a little at a time to the rest of the milk with a whisk, it didn’t smoothly incorporate. Had to use a spoon to hunt and mash the pieces of clump, which was hard since the onion and garlic was still in the pan. I’m going to try again, but add enough milk to the flour and yeast mix to make a smooth mixture, then add it to the rest of the milk.
I made this and loved it. I’ve been having trouble finding recipes I can eat that are plant-based because so many have chickpeas or beans. Unfortunately, it clashes with having microscopic colitis. So I was excited to find this one. I had to switch the onions with green onions and tried using the Farro for the first time. I wasn’t sure if it would agree with my intestines. It didn’t cause too much of a problem. Praying I’ll find more recipes that agree with me, to help my kidneys heal.
I used a bag of cauliflower florets because it’s what I had on hand, and used a spray bottle to flavour them before and during roasting. I added a bit of siracha to the creamed spinach, and served with a baked potato instead of farro. Unfortunately I still add a bit of salt to bring out flavours (that’s just me – my son doesn’t) but we both thought really good.
Very good! I needed more of the tamari water to coat my cauliflower. Next time, I will probably double the water/tamari mixture, put it in a bag or container, then add the cauliflower steaks to better coat. I will definitely make the spinach as a side for other meals.
