Serves 4-6
  • 2 large heads cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 limes, zested and juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 Tbsp chipotle powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • Lime wedges

Remove leaves on cauliflower and trim stem end until you can set the cauliflower flat on cutting board. Use a large, sharp knife to trim off sides, then cut cauliflower into 3-4 thick slices. Reserve florets that fall away for another use.

In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, garlic, and honey.

In another small bowl, combine lime zest, paprika, chipotle powder, and salt.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium heat. Clean and oil grill grate.

Brush one side of each cauliflower steak with oil-lime mixture and sprinkle with zest-paprika mixture. Place seasoned side down on grill. Brush tops with oil-lime mixture and season with zest-paprika mixture.

Cover grill and cook, 5-6 minutes. Remove lid and carefully flip cauliflower. Cover and cook until fork-tender, 5 minutes.

Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
