Print Recipe

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 15

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients for Cauliflower

1 large or 2 medium heads cauliflower

4 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Ingredients for Scallion Buttermilk Sauce

1 bunch scallions, bottom trimmed off

1 cup buttermilk

2 clove garlic, minced

Juice of 2 limes

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


01Heat a grill over medium heat and lightly oil the grates
02Remove leaves and trim the bottom stem of the cauliflower. On a cutting board, place cauliflower with the core side down. Carefully slice the cauliflower at the midline from top to bottom. Cut each side again from top to bottom so that there are four 1-inch “steaks.” Reserve any loose florets.
03Drizzle cauliflower steaks, florets, and scallions with 3 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
04Place cauliflower steaks on the grill and cook until tender and charred, approximately 10 minutes per side.
05In a grill basket, add florets, toss with remaining 1 tablespoon oil, and place on grill, tossing often, until cooked through, approximately 6 to 8 minutes.
06Place scallions on grill, turning occasionally, until charred, 2 to 3 minutes. Slice charred scallions.
07In a bowl, add charred scallions, buttermilk, garlic, lime juice, 1 teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper.
08On a platter, arrange cauliflower steaks and florets. Drizzle with Scallion Buttermilk Sauce or serve sauce on the side.
09CHEF TIP: Did you know that cauliflower is available in different colors? Many grocery stores and farmer’s markets carry more than white cauliflower. Look for a range of options, including orange, purple, and green!
