80--- Grilled Cauliflower Steaks

So what do vegetarians grill on Memorial Day? Vegetables.  The balsamic syrup brushed on these steaks caramelizes adding terrific flavor.  Try these as a main dish or as an interesting side!

Grilled Cauliflower Steaks
Serves 4

1 large head cauliflower, trimmed of leaves
1/4 cup balsamic syrup (or reduction)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Heat grill over medium heat.  Slice 1" slices from cauliflower head.  Brush each slice with olive oil, then with balsamic syrup.  Sprinkle each with salt, pepper and fennel.

Place cauliflower onto grill and cook for 7-8 minutes.  Flip steaks and cook on other side for 5-6 minutes.  When cauliflower is tender, sprinkle each steak with Parmesan cheese, then parsley.  Remove from grill when cheese has melted.  Serve immediately.

  1. I'm not even a huge fan of cauliflower, but this looks amazing!

  2. It sure looks worthy to be on the menu of any catering company in sydney. The catch here is it's easy to burn cauliflower so you have to be careful not to leave it on the grill for too long.
