Grilled Cauliflower

Grilled Cauliflower
Serves 4-6
2 large heads cauliflower, leaves trimmed, rinsed and patted dry
3 gloves garlic, grated
2 large limes, zested and juiced, plus wedges for garnish
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 tablespoon chipotle powder
2 teaspoons cumin
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
fresh cilantro, garnish
Level off the bottom of cauliflower stem so you can stand it up straight and take a large, serrated knife to cut cauliflower vertically into ìsteaks.
In a small bowl, mix together the lime zest, chipotle, cumin and salt and pepper.
Combine lemon juice, olive oil and garlic, in a separate bowl.
Using an outdoor grill or a griddle pan, set the heat to high and brush your ìsteakswith olive oil mixture.
Then generously and evenly sprinkle chipotle seasoning on the side. Place cauliflower seasoned side down on hot grill.
Brush top side with olive oil and dust with seasoning mixture. Repeat with remaining steaks, making sure to not crowd them together on the grill/griddle.
Cover pan and cook until (slightly) charred, 5-7 minutes.
Remove lid and flip cauliflower. Cook for another 5 minutes, or until tender.
Transfer to serving plate and garnish with freshly chopped cilantro.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
