Grilled Cauliflower Steaks with Hazelnut Brown Butter Dressing

40 Minutes | easy | Serves 2-4

Cauliflower fans will likely already know of this nifty trick for cooking cauli on the BBQ. Try to find large cauliflowers, as they make the best ‘steaks.’ Brown butter and cauliflower is a match made in heaven!


  • 2 large cauliflowers, leaves removed and cut into two thick ‘steaks’ down the centre (save the remaining florets for another time)
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 50g hazelnuts
  • Small handful chives, finely chopped
  • Small squeeze lemon juice
  • Oil, for cooking



Light two gas burners

Light two gas burners on the Jupiter Outback BBQ and set the heat to medium.


Rub the cauliflower

Rub the cauliflower steaks with oil and season with salt. Place over direct heat and cook for 10-15 minutes each side, or until tender.​​​​​​​

Toast the hazelnuts

Toast the hazelnuts in a fry frying pan, moving them around to prevent burning, around 5 minutes. Transfer to a clean tea towel and rub off their papery skins. Chop roughly and set aside.​​​​​​​

Put the butter in a saucepan

Put the butter in a saucepan with the hazelnuts and melt over medium heat until it turns light brown and begins to smell nutty – a few minutes. Add lemon juice and salt.​​​​​​​
