Have you tried grilled cauliflower steaks before?

They are surprisingly good!  Even the real steak loving hubs really liked them.

This green goddess sauce may not look the fanciest, but it is soooo tasty and really makes the grilled cauliflower steak special.

To make grilled cauliflower steak, I start with one big head of the veggie.

Next, slice it in half.  Cut two large “steaks” off each side.  I got two big ones out of each head and saved all the extra florets for another recipe.

I seasoned them simply so the sauce would shine.

Next I throw it on the grill and don’t move them until it is time to flip.

Serve the cauliflower steak alone, with the green goddess sauce on the side…

… or drizzle the sauce on the top.

Either way it is one tasty way to eat your vegetables!  And it gives you another grilling option for vegetarians.

    Yum, I love roasted cauliflower so I bet I would love it grilled as well. And the presentation on cauliflower steaks is so pretty.

    This is one of my favorite ways to cook cauliflower. Green goddess is a great idea for this dish.

    Have an awesome weekend Julie!

      Thanks Jill! The green goddess makes it in my opinion and with the greek yogurt base, it is really good for you!

    The Green Goddess Sauce sounds heavenly. I don’t eat cauliflower too often, but I bet the sauce will go good with just about anything. Thanks for sharing, Julie! Screenshotting the recipe now.

      The sauce is super versatile! You can absolutely use it with many things!

    I had green goddess dressing on a salad yesterday and I’ve been wanting to recreate it at home! I’ll have to try.

    • JulieWunder July 9, 2015 at 8:16 pm - Reply

      Yes! This is so versatile! I use it for salads too!

    I’ve never grilled cauliflower before! We don’t have a working grill right now, so not much grilling has been done at our place, unfortunately. I’d love some grilled cauliflower, though!

      Doh! I hope you get a grill soon! Sounds like a great wedding registry thing to me 🙂

    This looks really good! There is a restaurant downtown that serves a cauliflower steak sandwich. It kind of hurts my teeth after a while, so I bet eating it with a knife and fork works better. 🙂

    • JulieWunder July 9, 2015 at 8:15 pm - Reply

      Oh yeah! I think a fork and knife would totally work better!

  12. I was really into grilled cauliflower last summer but completely forgot about it. This sauce looks great too!

    I cannot wait to try this one!!! Yummy!

    I’ve never grilled cauliflower, but I feel like I should now! I love that you get the grill marks on the veggie : ) I grilled pizza once. It was an interesting experience. The dough was somewhat tricky, but it was delicious pizza!

    I’m loving your creative recipes lately, Julie! Although, I can’t lie…the star of this one may be the green goddess dressing. Yum!

    • JulieWunder July 9, 2015 at 8:14 pm - Reply

      Absolutely! The cauliflower really needs something like that in my opinion!
      Thank you!!!!

  16. Ohhh, that looks yummy! I never thought of it as a “steak”!

    • JulieWunder July 9, 2015 at 8:13 pm - Reply

      Haha! I know! I even ate it with a steak knife! Kind of fun.

    I LOVE cauliflower “steak,” I love grilled anything, and I love green goddess. WINNER right here!

    Good day, Julie,
    I had just recently heard of cauliflower steak and am so glad to see how they are prepared. You cut them about an inch thick, didn’t you? Thanks so much for sharing this idea. Hope your Tuesday goes well.

    • JulieWunder July 9, 2015 at 8:13 pm - Reply

      Yes! I went super thick– about an inch. I hope you had a great day too!
