  • 1 head cauliflower cut into florets
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 c. olive oil


  • Clean and heat grill to medium or about 400 degrees F.
  • In a mixing bowl combine spices and olive oil. Add cauliflower florets and mix until combined.
  • Place grill pan on grill and spread cauliflower out evenly on the pan.
  • Close grill and cook for about 20 minutes or until cauiflower is crisp tender.


Seasonings - Try these other seasonings to mix things up!
  • Steak Seasoning – Gives it a hearty taste that pairs well with vegetables.
  • Chile Lime – Add a little kick and flavor!
  • Curry – Delicious and unique.
  • Old Bay – Simple and common but still a great seasoning that’s probably already in your pantry!
  • Lemon Pepper – Adds a hint of lemon and spice.
  • Blackening Spice – Gives a pepper taste that cuts the sweetness of the cauliflower.
Make your Own Grill Pan - If you don’t have a grill pan, don’t worry. You can simply use this aluminum foil hack instead!
Make a “pan” and set the cauliflower on it. Leave it open on top to be charred. If you want it to be less charred, you can seal up the tinfoil for a more steamed effect and texture.
