Instructions
  1. Insert the steam rack into the Instant Pot. Add 1 1⁄2 cups water
  2. Remove the leaves from the cauliflower and trim the core so the cauliflower sits flat. Place on the steam rack.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, paprika, cumin, and salt. Drizzle over the cauliflower and rub to coat.
  4. Lock the lid. Press [Manual] and cook on high pressure for 4 minutes. Use the “Quick Release” method to vent the steam, then open the lid.
  5. Lift the cauliflower onto a cutting board and slice into 1-inch-thick steaks. Divide among plates and sprinkle with the cilantro.
  6. Serve with the lemon quarters. Enjoy!

    This is delicious! I made it exactly as stated (with the exception of smoked paprika instead of regular paprika) and it turned out great! So easy! I will definitely make this again!

    It was way too mushy. Any tips on how to avoid that? I have an 8 quart and wondering if I am able to reduce the water to a cup though it won’t cover the entire bottom. Or what about using low pressure? Thanks!
