1. Preheat the oven to 220C fan. Place the steaks on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.⁠

2. In a bowl, mix together some oil and the remaining steak ingredients and brush 1/2 of it over the steaks. Bake in the oven for 15 mins, then flip over each steak and coat again with the remaining mixture and bake again for another 15 mins.⁠

3. For the salad, mix together all the ingredients, season and divide between two plates.⁠ Season.

4. Blitz together all the ingredients for the avo sauce in a blender and season.⁠

To serve, place the steaks over the chickpeas and add some dollops of avo sauce. The cauliflower leaf crisp added a fun layer of texture to this otherwise delicious plate of food - recipe can be found @sonasfoodjournal
