Print Recipe


  • 2 heads cauliflower
  • 3 tbsp ghee, melted
  • 1 lime, juice of (optional)

For the seasoning:

Optional toppings:

  • Spicy mayo - (1 tbsp hot sauce mixed with 1/4 cup mayo)
  • Chopped cilantro


  • Heat a grill to medium-high heat (about 450° Fahrenheit).
  • Make the seasoning by combining the seasoning ingredients in a small bowl and mixing well.
  • Prepare optional toppings if you are using them to have them ready.
  • Remove the outer green leaves from each cauliflower head and cut off the thick bottom stem. Place cauliflower stem side down and slice off the round outer edges. Then, slice each remaining head into 3 steaks. Note: The thicker you cut the steaks the better they stay together. You might only get 2 steaks out of a smaller head.
  • Lay the steaks and any trimmed edges/pieces out on a large sheet pan so you can easily transfer them to the grill
  • Melt ghee and brush both sides of the cauliflower with ghee. Sprinkle the seasoning mixture liberally over on both sides of the cauliflower.
  • Place cauliflower on the hot grill and cook for 6-8 minutes, until the bottom is beginning to brown and char. Flip and cook for another 5-6 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.
  • Remove from the grill and squeeze lime juice (optional) over the grilled cauliflower. Top with optional toppings and serve.
