These vegan grilled cauliflower steaks topped with a fresh peach romesco sauce make the perfect weeknight summer dinner.
Grilling cauliflower isn’t new to me, but I’m excited to share this new grilled cauliflower recipe because it stars one of my fave summer fruits- peaches. Perfect for your next meatless dinner night, these vegan grilled cauliflower steaks topped with a fresh peach romesco sauce is the ultimate summer meal. It’s got sweetness, tanginess and a smokiness you won’t want to miss. Here’s how to make it.
How to Make Peach Romesco Sauce
Traditional romesco sauce is made of roasted red peppers, garlic, almonds, tomatoes, parsley, sherry vinegar and spices. It’s good, trust me. But adding fresh summer peaches makes it ah-maz-ing.
Trust me when I say that you are going to want to put this peach romesco sauce on practically EVERYTHING. But for now, we’re topping our grilled cauliflower steaks with this addictive sauce. In a food processor, mix the roasted red peppers, peaches, almonds, garlic, parsley, mint, vinegar and olive oil until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and set aside until your steaks are ready!
How to Make Vegan Grilled Cauliflower Steaks
When I first started making cauliflower steaks, the most difficult part was cutting slices out of a head of cauliflower, but since then I’ve picked up a few tricks. First, cut the cauliflower and half. With one half, cut off a 1-inch steak from the cut side. Do the same thing with the other half. Voila, you’ve got some steaks that are ready to be grilled! Season the cauliflower steaks with some olive oil, lemon juice, paprika and salt and pepper. Now it’s time to grill those steaks on the barbecue.
IMPORTANT TIP: instead of throwing out the leftover cauliflower use them as a side dish or in a soup! I usually steam them for Baby E because they’re a favourite food. No waste here, at Abbey’s Kitchen.
Top with our addictive freshly made peach romesco sauce and dinner is served! Make it for your next dinner party and easily become everyone’s favourite person.
