Grilled Chipotle Cauliflower 

The warm weather has me craving grilled veggies, and this is my favorite grilled cauliflower recipe yet!  It’s smoky, a little spicy, and the lime and cilantro give it a fresh pop!

Start by mixing your olive oil mixture in a small bowl…olive oil, 2 limes (zested and juiced),

Place the florets into a grill skillet or pan and grill on medium-high for 20-25 minutes; stirring occasionally.

Once the cauliflower is almost finished, place one lime (halved) cut side down on the grill for 2 minutes.

Once the cauliflower has reached your desired texture, top with cilantro and serve with the grilled lime.

Ingredients:
2 large heads cauliflower; chopped into florets
1/4 cup olive oil
2 limes, zested and juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons honey
2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon chipotle powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves
1 Lime; halved and grilled

Instructions:

Whisk the olive oil with the lime juice in a small bowl. Whisk in the grated garlic and honey or agave syrup. In a separate bowl, mix the lime zest, cumin, chipotle, and salt.

Heat a gas or charcoal grill to medium-high. Place the cauliflower florets into a large bowl.  Pour the olive oil mixture over the florets and sprinkle with the chipotle powder mixture. Stir well to combine and completely coat the cauliflower.  Place the seasoned florets into a grill skillet on the hot grill.

Cover the grill and cook for 10-15 minutes. Remove the lid and carefully stir the cauliflower. Cook covered for an additional 5-10 minutes or until done to your desired texture.

While the cauliflower finishes cooking, place your lime (cut sides down) on the grill and cook for 2 minutes.

Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and serve immediately with the grilled lime on the side.
