  • Try slicing the cauliflower into 'steaks' with flat edges.


We love roasted cauliflower! I made this on a gas grill recently and it worked well to settle the temperature at about 400 degrees F as suggested here for the oven. I traded the onion powder for chili powder.

I make this all the time.  My family loves it!
