Miguel's Sticky Soy BBQ Cauliflower Steaks

Category: food

So you’ve heard of cauliflower rice, but what about cauliflower steaks? Gone are the days of basic boiled veggies, look at cauliflower in a whole other light with this filling, flavoursome feast.

1. Pre-heat the grill to medium heat. Slice the cauliflower into thick steak slices. Place in a baking dish and pour the sweet soy sauce, sesame seeds, sesame oil, palm sugar, salt, zest and juice. Mix well. Shake off excess marinade and grill for 2 minutes on each side, basting with a brush the excess marinade.

2. To make coriander pesto – in a food processor add coriander, cashews, mint and olive oil. Process until pesto consistency.

3. Serve with lime wedges, thinly sliced watermelon radish and red chilli.
