  1. Step 1

    Remove the outer leaves from each cauliflower, leaving the core intact. Cut two 1.5cm-thick steaks from the centre of each cauliflower (reserve excess florets for another use).
  2. Step 2

    Combine the turmeric, paprika, cumin, ground coriander and 1 tbs of the oil in a large bowl. Add the cauliflower steaks and gently toss to coat. Season well.
  3. Step 3

    Heat a chargrill over medium heat. Add half the cauliflower and cook for 3 mins each side or until golden brown and tender. Transfer cauliflower to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining cauliflower.
  4. Step 4

    Add the kale and chickpeas to the pan and cook, tossing, for 5 mins or until the kale wilts. Season.
  5. Step 5

    Meanwhile, combine the yoghurt, lemon juice and tahini in a medium bowl. Place the coriander leaves, mint and remaining oil in a blender and blend until smooth. Add 1 tbs of the coriander mixture to the yoghurt mixture and gently marble.
  6. Step 6

    Spoon the yoghurt mixture onto serving plates. Top with the kale mixture and cauliflower. Drizzle with the remaining coriander mixture.
