Under a Conventional Grill: Cauliflower Steaks with Persian Cauliflower Blend

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • Persian Cauliflower Spice Blend

  5. Serve: Transfer the cauliflower steaks to a serving platter. They can be served with a variety of sauces or dips, such as a tahini sauce, for added flavor.
