grilled cauliflower steak sandwich

Don't sit in the corner at a summer barbeque just because you don't eat meat. These hearty grilled vegetarian and (if you choose) gluten-free savory sandwiches will make the carnivores eye you with envy!

Cauliflower Steak Sandwich


1 large Cauliflower or broccoflower/Romanesco head

2 cloves garlic, minced

Celtic sea salt

Olive oil

For Sandwich:

2 slices toasted whole wheat bread or, for gluten-free, Udi’s whole grain brown rice bread

Basil pesto


Greens: arugula, spinach, mixed greens

Celtic sea salt

Fresh ground pepper


Pre-Heat your grill or oven to 400 degrees

To prepare cauliflower steaks:

Wash and pat dry cauliflower

Slice ½” thick cross-sections ( you will get anywhere from 6-8 slices per head)

In a flat dish or plate add ¼ Cup Olive Oil, ½ tsp salt, and 2 cloves minced garlic

Dip to coat each steak on both sides. Repeat until all steaks are coated.

Place the steaks onto grill and cover for 4 minutes on medium heat.

If using oven, bake for 20 minutes or until fork tender. If more time is needed for the cauliflower steaks flip them over and roast another 10-15 minutes or until tender and nicely browned.


Putting together your sandwich:

Mash enough avocado onto toasted bread.

Spread desired amount of pesto

Add greens

Top with cauliflower steak

Fresh pepper to taste
