  • 1 Large head of cauliflower, sliced lengthwise through the core into 4 'steaks'
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • Sea salt

For the Romesco Sauce:

  • 1/4 Cup Slivered Almonds
  • 1/2 A large tomato on the vine, chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Thinly sliced roasted red peppers, packed
  • 1/2 Tbsp Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground cumin
  • Sliced parsley, for garnish


  • Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees. Spread the almonds onto a small baking sheet and bake until lightly golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Watch them closely as they burn fast. Set aside. Pre heat your grill to medium heat.
  • Place the cauliflower steaks on a cutting board and mix the lemon juice and oil together in a small bowl. Rub half of the oil mixture all over the tops of the cauliflower and sprinkle with salt.
  • Place the cauliflower "steaks" on the grill, oil side down and cook until they are charred and begin to soften, about 8-9 minutes. Then, rub the rest of the oil mixture on top of the "steaks" and flip. Cook until soft and fork tender, about another 8-10 minutes.
  • While the cauliflower cooks, place the 1/2 tomato into a SMALL food processor (mine is 3 cups) and process until broken down and smooth*.
  • Add all the other sauce ingredients in, including the toasted almonds, and process until smooth and creamy.
  • Serve the sauce over the cauliflower and garnish with parsley.


*Don't try to mix everything without breaking down the tomato first - it doesn't work well and you will have chunky tomato.
