Nutritional information (per serve)
Instructions and steps:
1 Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line two or three large baking trays with baking paper.
2 Cut both the broccoli and the cauliflower from top to base into 1.5cm-thick ‘steaks’, keeping the pieces intact. Lay the steaks on prepared trays. Spray with olive oil. Season with cracked black pepper. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden and tender.
3 Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a small non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add capers, almonds and garlic; cook until lightly golden and capers are crispy. Grate over lemon zest. Add the dried cranberries and a squeeze of lemon juice.
4 Transfer the broccoli and cauliflower steaks to a serving platter. Spoon over the caper mixture. Drizzle with extra olive oil, if needed. Serve.
