One medium head of cauliflower
Salt & pepper to taste
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
Juice from 1/2 lime
Cilantro to taste
Slice a head of cauliflower right down the middle (after removing all of the leaves, and bottom stem so it sits flat on a cutting board). Cut one “steak” from each half – about an inch thick – and reserve the rest for using another time.
Drizzle each “steak” with olive oil, and season with salt/pepper, smoked paprika and garlic powder.
Grill until browned and a bit crispy on the edges (10-15 minutes)
While the cauliflower is grilling, make the sauce: add avocado, yogurt and lime juice to a food processor or blender and puree (may need to add water to thin). Season with salt and pepper then drizzle the sauce over the cauliflower. Garnish with cilantro leaves.
- This can be served as a side, on top of a salad, or topped with chicken or black beans to give it more staying power.
