Crisp, tender, and complex, this grilled spiced takes a fall staple and pushes it to the extremes of both flavor and texture.

Why this recipe works:

  • A spice mixture gives the cauliflower an earthy flavor with just a touch of heat.
  • the cauliflower over direct heat first creates a lightly charred, crispy crust.
  • Finishing the cauliflower over indirect heat lets it gently cook until tender throughout.

Note: When slicing the cauliflower, be sure to cut through it vertically so that the florets on each slice are held together by a portion of the core and/or stalk—you want large pieces of cauliflower so that they don’t slip down through the grill grate.

Ingredients

  • For the Spice Mixture:
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • For the Cauliflower:
  • 1 head of cauliflower, trimmed of green leaves and cut into 3/4-inch slices (see note above)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems
