Grilled Cauliflower (Serves 4)

Warm weather is on the way, so here is a new grilling recipe for you to try. Cauliflower does not have much of a reputation as a food to grill outdoors, but I think you will be impressed by this delicious dish.
Henry helped prepare the grilled cauliflower.
Since Henry is in an "I don't like it" phase, I cannot say that he approved this dish. He was, however, willing to take two taste test bites. And he very much enjoyed painting the cauliflower with olive oil and spices.

You’ll probably be able to use about half of the cauliflower head as large steaks for this recipe; you can reserve the remaining small florets for another recipe (I used ours to make New York Cauliflower for the next evening’s dinner).


Ingredients
1 head of cauliflower
½ cup olive oil
½ t cumin
½ t coriander
½ t salt
½ t pepper
Grilled cauliflower cooking on the barbecue.
Directions
Rinse cauliflower. Slice it vertically into large steaks ¼-inch thick. Place the cauliflower steaks on a large sheet pan.

Whisk together the olive oil, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. Use a brush to paint the cauliflower steaks with the oil mixture.

Heat a barbecue grill to medium-high. Place the cauliflower on the grill to cook for about 3 minutes per side. Serve warm.
