Grilled Cauliflower Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

This is NOT your average grilled steak - it's time to mix things up!


  • Cauliflower steak:
  • 2 large heads cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chimichurri sauce:
  • 1/2 cup parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. For grilled cauliflower: Heat a grill to medium-high.
  2. Carefully cut the cauliflower heads into 1-inch-thick slices. You should be able to get 2 to 3 steaks from each head.
  3. Combine olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Brush the cauliflower with the olive oil mixture. Grill the cauliflower steaks for about 5 to 6 minutes per side, carefully flipping them over.
  4. For chimichurri sauce: Add parsley, cilantro, mint, olive oil, lemon, garlic, salt and red pepper flakes into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  5. Serve cauliflower steaks drizzled with chimichurri sauce.
