Chilli Lime Barbecue Cauliflower Steaks

JUMP TO RECIPE

You’ve probably eaten cauliflower as rice, mashed, boiled and baked – but have you ever tried it grilled on the BBQ?

My meat eating husband really loved these (even though he didn’t think he would). The flavour sings with tangy, smokey vibes.

If you’re vegetarian or vegan and want a delicious option for BBQs, these chilli lime cauliflower steaks are your solution!

If you eat dairy, you can sprinkle with fetta for a little bit extra flavour. Keep the leftover florets and use in another recipe (like Crispy Parmesan Cauliflower Nuggets).

Don’t love coriander/cilantro? Swap it out for parsley.
