grilled cauliflower steaks

These grilled cauliflower steaks can be a fun and unique side dish, or an entree if topped with your favorite protein. A creamy, bright green dressing cools off the heat from the seasoning.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. 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.

  2. Drizzle each “steak” with olive oil, and season with salt/pepper, smoked paprika and garlic powder.

  3. Grill until browned and a bit crispy on the edges (10-15 minutes)

  4. 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.
