Servings 2 Steaks


  • 2 ~1 ½ inch Cauliflower Steaks, see above for cutting tips
  • 1 ½ tablespoon Plant-Based Butter, melted I used Country Crock Plant Butter
  • 2 tsp Harissa Paste
  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • ½ teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Onion Powder
  • Salt

For the Optional Tahini Sauce

  • 2 tablespoon Tahini
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 ½ Tbsp Water
  • Pinch Salt


  • Heat grill.

To make the Tahini Sauce

  • In a small bowl combine tahini and lemon juice and stir. The mixture will get really thick! Add water, a little bit at a time until you achieve a smooth, creamy sauce. Season with a pinch of salt. Set aside.

For the Cauliflower Steaks

  • Meanwhile combine melted plant butter, harissa paste, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder and oregano.
  • Brush all the harissa butter over the two cauliflower steaks, being sure to get all the crevices!
  • Season each side of the cauliflower steaks with salt.
  • Reduce grill heat to medium high/medium and place cauliflower steaks on and close the lid.
  • Let cook for 10 minutes, flip and let cook with the lid closed for 10-13 minutes longer. Pierce with a fork to test for doneness.
  • Serve with grilled veggies and roasted sweet potatoes or put it on a sandwich!
