Chipotle Lime Cauliflower Steaks
  • • 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
  • • ¾ tablespoon chipotle powder
  • • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • • fresh cilantro, garnish
  1. 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 “steaks.”
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the lime zest, chipotle, cumin and salt and pepper.
  3. Combine lemon juice, olive oil and garlic, in a separate bowl.
  4. Using an outdoor grill or a griddle pan, set the heat to high and brush your “steaks” with olive oil mixture.
  5. Then generously and evenly sprinkle chipotle seasoning on the side. Place cauliflower seasoned side down on hot grill.
  6. 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.
  7. Cover pan and cook until (slightly) charred, 5-7 minutes.
  8. Remove lid and flip cauliflower. Cook for another 5 minutes, or until tender.
  9. Transfer to serving plate and garnish with freshly chopped cilantro.
  10. Serve immediately and enjoy!
