Grilled Cauliflower Steaks

Grilled Cauliflower Steaks

Ingredients:

  • orange cauliflower head
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Instructions:

  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  • Whisk oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, smoked paprika, brown sugar, chili powder, and black pepper together in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Remove the tough bottom leaves from cauliflower, taking care not to remove the stem.
  • Place the cauliflower heads onto a cutting board with the stem side facing upwards; cut vertically on both sides of the stem to remove the loose florets. Reserve florets for another use.
  • Cut each cauliflower vertically through the stem into 2 even "steaks", 1" to 1 1/2" thick. Remove any remaining small leaves from each steak. Place the 4 steaks on a baking sheet.
  • Brush one side of the steaks with the oil mixture. Place steaks on grill, oiled side down; grill for 5 minutes. Brush more oil mixture on top and gently flip over. Grill until golden brown and slightly charred, 5 to 7 minutes more.
  • Drizzle with any remaining oil and remove to a plate. Enjoy!
