no grill, so i used my iron griddle, but this recipe got me started on grilled/fried cauliflower. first i just fried it in olive oil, and that was great. then added diced garlic, and it was even better. now i'm making it with shredded romano on top for the last 3 or 4 minutes. i never did get around to using the brown sugar—i'm diabetic. this is a perfect entree for me, and i love it. even the "not-that-fond-of-cauliflower wife likes it. if you like cauliflower even a little, you should try this.Read More

I’m about to do the type of review I hate. You know, the kind where the cook modifies the recipe so you can’t tell for sure if the correct recipe is good or not? I wanted to do this recipe as written, but my cauliflower was too small to get more than a couple of nice slices off it, but I really wanted to grill it along with my chicken. So, I cut it up into florets, tossed it in a bowl with 2 TB’s of olive oil to coat it. I mixed my own homemade season-all-type mixture with the brown sugar and sprinkled it on the cauliflower. But how to actually grill it? I borrowed the technique from a (less worthy) recipe and put the florets in a doubled-on-the-bottom aluminum foil pouch with 4 slitted vents, and grilled them on the lowest gas grill setting, turning them every 12 minutes, then checking after 14 (each grill will vary, of course.) On charcoal/wood, you should off-set the pouch. I really do hope to do this recipe exactly as written someday when I have a large enough veggie, I think it’ll be great! But I hope this modification helps someone else in my predicament. There aren’t many grilling/roasting veggie recipes out there, so thank you so, so much ziola.
I don't know if it is the light grilled flavor or the brown sugar that transforms the Cauliflower flavor into a little slice of heaven.
Oh my gosh.... this was great! Make sure you slice the cauliflower large enough so it doesn't fall apart and if you really want to have slices for presentation purposes, get a couple heads of cauliflower, you really only get 2 nice slices per head, otherwise, it is large chunks which still cooked up nicely and tasted great!
I just made this with cauliflower and broccoli and used a vegetable grill pan that has holes in it for about five or so minutes tossing once, then put back in the same pan I used to mix, covered with foil on the grill for another 12 or so minutes and it is delicious! So simple, in fact my husband makes his own seasoning mix for grilling and it also has brown sugar in it so I used his seasoning. It was very easy and it tastes so good. Thank you very much for this recipe!
Loved it! And my kids do too!
This was a hit. I used my cast iron skillet on the grill to finish it. Also cut the slices from the center and cut them in half for easy handling. Husband ooood over it.
My family didn't like the seasoning on this at all. The cooking method is a success, and one that will definitely be repeated with different flavors.
This is great. The resulting mixture seemed suspiciously small to me so I doubled it, which was a mistake - the spices were too powerful. Don't have an outdoor grill, so I first boiled the cauliflower, then added the spice mixture, and then baked it for twenty minutes at 180c. The texture was perfect.
This tasted good enough but it sure wasn't as easy as I thought. Slicing a head of cauliflower took some doing and mine also fell apart. I didn't use my grill it since it was winter and I think that was the problem. I panned fried the slices along with all the pieces and the flavor was really OK but it was so greasy. I still gave it 4 stars because the recipe does say to grill it and I think it would be so much better that way. I did sprinkle some Romano cheese on it before serving and I loved the result. I do plan to try this again in the summer on the grill. Thanks for a really unique recipe!
It was delicious hot or cold.
Thank you for sharing your recipe. I think all the negative comments are totally unnecessary. And when you change a recipe completely there’s no need to put all that in here. The comments are for the recipe end of story.
Just made this for the first time and it was INCREDIBLE. Although my cauliflower was largely in slabs, I also had some pieces that fell off, so a vegetable grille pan was perfect to keep it all together. Also, I didn't grill it directly on the rack, but the pan did a fine job at charring it. To make it faster, steam it in the microwave first. YUM!
Part of my cauliflower fell apart when I tried to slice it in planks. I just through the big florets on the grill with the rest of it and that worked fine. My husband really liked it. My piece was a little light on the seasoning, and I wished it had a little more. I found it a little difficult sprinkling the brown sugar evenly, so he may have gotten the perfectly-seasoned piece.
The seasoning was excellent. I also used it on the other veggies I was grilling with the cauliflower. Definitely will use again. Thank you.
No grill!! I baked and then for the last couple minutes turned on the broiler and drilled cauliflower appeared. This was my first time ever making cauliflower...Delicious!
We really liked this recipe and I will make again. I searched and searched but I just don't have a pan that I can put on the grill so I steamed the cauliflower for 8 minutes in the microwave. Lawrey's ® isn't available here so I used Mrs. Dash® instead. Great little recipe, thanks for sharing.
Very good and easy to make. I thought it was great, and my wife and kid, who don't like veggies as much as I do, at least thought it was OK. I did make some changes: 1) I quartered 2 heads of cauliflower instead of slicing - I thought they would stay together better. 2) Quartering basically made 3 sides on each quarter, so 2-3 minutes grill time on each side - less than 10 minutes total. 3) After grilling, I wrapped everything in aluminum foil instead of using a pan - cooked for 20 minutes. 4) I seasoned as instructed when grilling, but used bacon grease, brown sugar, and minced garlic inside the foil. Everything came out fine, but thought it would create more brown sugar garlic sauce in the foil. Maybe a splash of water or vinegar next time.
We’ve been making this for quit awhile already. We use a basket like u put fish or pieces in. Lock them in there marinated with olive oil and seasoned salt. No brown sugar. To each their own. It’s super delicious. It’s funny we are having it tonite and your recipe popped up. Awesome veggies. Asparagus the same way. !!!
This is a great recipe, didn't use all brown sugar but my husband said its the best cauliflower he has had. Will use this recipe from now on when grilling!
I made this and it turned out great. I used a BBQ Grill Mat which you can use on a gas or charcoal grill. I'm not one to push products but like everyone else small veggies kept falling through my grates too. This is 100 percent better then a basket. I think it only cost me $20. Google it and go back to enjoying small grilled veggies.
The sweet flavoring made the cauliflower so much better! I didn't have a grill so I panfried it and then cooked in the oven as directed. Came out great
Another five star review! Yeah I used my iron skillet and yeah rubbed the brown sugar into the slices. Such a wonderful taste that my poor Hubby complained there wasn't nuff for HIM! Lol. Thanks for a great recipe!
Pretty good, added a bit of parm cheese before serving
I did make changes - par boiled califlower in steam bag for 3 min then tossed in oil and grilled for 5 min - turning a few times - tossed with some Italian salad dressing before serving.
It seemed a bit too salty and I wasn't able to cut the cauliflower in slices very easily, which meant a lot of little "flowers" instead.
I could not grill this as instructed. Cauliflower crumbles when cut, and pieces continued to fall off. So, instead, I cut smaller pieces and laid them out on a sheet of tin foil. I then put the foil on a slotted grill pan we use for vegetables. After cooking the pieces on each side for about 5 minutes, I closed up the tin foil and cooked them another 10 minutes. I only used half a head of cauliflower. I’m glad I did because the flavoring was perfect.
Very easy to make! Only change I’d make next time is to reduce cooking by 5 minutes.
This cauliflower tasted a lot like roasted marshmallows. Sooo good!
Great recipe ! I did make the cauliflower pieces too small so lost some in the grilling process.
This was fantastic! Used only about 1 tsp. brown sugar and turned out perfect!
Followed receive exactly. Love it.
Delicious! I did it without the brown sugar. Wonderful!
I enjoyed this meal. First time I have had baked cauliflower.
Made it love it. I confess I topped each with a small piece of butter when served.
I made this recipe with seasoning as described and also with Montreal steak seasoning. I liked the steak seasoning better as the sweetness of brown sugar on the cauliflower didn't work for me. That said, I will definitely be grilling cauliflower again.
This recipe is easy and delicious! Even a friend that doesn't like cauliflower loved this. I will continue to make this.
I only used garlic powder, salt and pepper, olive oil. Grilled until browned and finished in microwave.
Good stuff! It got a little crumbly toward the end of the grilling, but I managed it carefully with a spatula. I might use a bit less sugar next time, as I was going for more savory than sweet.
This was great! Hard to cut into steaks though, only got 2 steaks but the rest were larger pieces. Basted both sides with olive oil, sprinkled both sides with brown sugar and Lawry's season salt, grilled on medium on foil grill pans on the BBQ then reduced heat to low and covered in foil. This was an easy recipe and turned out great!
Five stars for flavor but three for execution. Out of the whole head, I only got two slices to stay intact, so I cut the whole thing up and put it in a grill pan. Delicious flavor and very easy. Will definitely make again.
I loved it... I had never thought of grilling cauliflower and this was AWESOME, even my roommate enjoyed it... and he is a died in the wool avid "steamed cauliflower" is the only way. I think this recipe gave him a new perspective.
It is do easy and delicious. This is now my favorite way to make cauliflower. I’ll be making this often.
So simple, but really delicious. The brown sugar caramelizes and gives the cauliflower a golden brown coating and a slightly sweet flavor. Grilled them quickly directly on each side, then put in cast iron pan with foil on top on the grill for about 25 minutes more.
I opt out the sugar put in Tex Mex seasoning, garlic powder and smoked paprika. Delicious!!!
I didn't have fresh cauliflower, so decided to try this recipe with some bags of frozen florets but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. OMG, my family devoured it. Cooked on the grille in a grilling basket so that the smaller florets wouldn't fall through the grates. Delish! Now my son, who previously said he didn't like cauliflower, is asking when I am going to grille more LOL. I was afraid it would taste too sweet with the brown sugar, but it didn't at all. I will definitely make this again, and may even try this method with some other veggies- squash perhaps.
made it like the recipe. It was delish
A new favorite that will be back over and over! De-licious!!
I will definitely make this more often.
This is a fantastic recipe, I doubled the sauce recipe to properly cover the vegetables. For the pan I slid the cauliflower onto a grill pad and covered it with a cake pan. Only needed about 15 minutes before it was tender and caramelized. Make sure you buy a large head and cut thickly to avoid it falling apart.
This is one of my all-time favorite summer side dishes! The beauty is how simple it is! People are always shocked when I tell them that great flavor is 3 ingredients! But, I do not cook direct grill grates. Instead; I put in a foil lined grill basket and grill, stirring halfway through. Many thanks for this recipe!!
Delicious - adding the brown sugar made the cauliflower taste like candy. So good! We used a grill pan so we could use the whole cauliflower head.
Really easy to make and tasty. I added a cayenne for a bit more snap
The cauliflower falls apart even if you cut thick slices and then on the grill more falls apart - but the taste was there - I will figure away
I made this in my oven on low broil for about 25 minutes and it is sooo delicious I wished I would have bought 2 heads of cauliflower! It’s easy to make and you won’t be disappointed but glad you made this to enjoy
I followed the recipe as stated. My cauliflower broke into smaller pieces so I used a grill mat on the grill. It came out wonderful! Everyone raved at the flavor. After using the grill mat, i covered a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and put all the pieces on it and finished “baking” it on the grill on the higher grate over the coals. Carmelized perfectly.
Really awesome flavor and a great addition to roasted pork loin.
Made the recipe pretty much as specified but I did double to triple the portions for the good sized cauliflower I used. For the most part, the cauliflower 'held up' to cutting and grilling. We thought it very good and leftovers were great 'cold' the next day. Grilling vegetables is a great cooking idea. If you are doing it another way as several are based on reviews, I think you are missing the added nuances to the taste that comes with the grilling process.
Tasty, but I couldn't cut the whole head into florets so used a grill basket for the broken ones.
No flavor other than the seasoning salt, which is such a low-rent ingredient in cooking.
Very very good and easy
It was delicious, but it was super hard to cut the cauliflower in slices thick enough to say together without crumbling. My husband is not a fan of cauliflower and didn't like it, but I'm willing to try it again!
So easy & even one of my kids that doesn't usually eat cauliflower had seconds!
Easy and came out great. I don't like cauliflower and these were amazing side dish!
I made this as the recipe calls for like we ALL should do & it is very good. The 2nd time i made it i added just a touch of Onion Powder & Crushed Red Pepper Flakes for some added zip. It was great!
Tasted wonderful. Used slightly less sugar than called for.
Did florets and placed on a grill mat. I’ll add more season salt next time, but got rave reviews!
This was a very easy and tasty way to make cauliflower. I will make this again!!
I think this is a terrible thing to do to a perfectly nice cauliflower. I also do not think that cauliflower belongs on pizza. My husband liked it.
The topping was amazing. We had BBQ chicken breasts and this was a wonderful side with it. My hubs grilled the marks in and then wrapped in foil and filled for an addicting 15 mins. That is much too long. The flavor was great the the cauliflower was a bit mushy. I’d suggest cooking it covered for about 6 minutes if you like it a bit crisper.
I absolutely LOVE this recipe. I just fry the slices (and pieces) in a frying pan in olive oil. Once they are close to tender enough, I sprinkle brown sugar and Parmesan cheese on top, let it all melt, and then serve it....it is now my go to way to eat cauliflower....
I’ve finally converted my non-cauliflower-loving husband! It’s the brown sugar, of course. Slicing it into steaks is a bit tricky, but it’s worth it.
This is my new favorite recipe for cauliflower. It was the first thing gone on the plate. The texture was perfect as well.
It was okay. We found it a little odd.
No changes, will make it again
This was so awesome . I've made it twice this week !!!!
I made this last week. Used Louisana Cajun Seasoning together with the brown sugar and the results were great. The flavours blended quite well. My son is not a fan of cauliflower but he enjoyed them. I will definitely make again.
Too sweet for our tastes , but the idea was great. I’m going to try substituting balsamic vinegar for the sugar and chilli flakes with the salt. Fingers crossed.
I LOVED THIS DISH..... Loving Cauliflower I wanted a recipe where I could grille it. I followed the recipe exactly but doubled or tripled each ingredient, the half head of cauliflower I used needed this increase to coat each piece thoroughly. I can see one could use many variations of this recipe... the brown sugar was an interesting twist. Bravo, 5 Stars in my book. I’ll be fixing this again and again....
Easy to make and very tasty.
Outstanding....better than expected.... will certainly be doing this again.
I don't like season salt, so I used salt, pepper, garlic, onion powders and parsley. I forgot about using the sugar and it was still delicious.
Delicious! Had a little trouble cutting the cauliflower without it breaking into florets, but eventually got the hang of it. Instead of Lawry's, I used my own mixture of the same spices that Lawry's has in it.
I made it and it was delicious. Will tweak the recipe a bit next time and not cook for as long as I did.
Flavor was awesome. Hubby let it cook a bit too long and it looked burnt but carmelized. Will try again.
Delicious. Mom said it was the best cauliflower she has ever eaten. I used avocado oil instead of olive oil and did not put on grill. I added ingredients to a heat proof dish covered with aluminum foil and placed on bottom grill of barbecue for 20 mins turning the cauliflower half way through. Cooking time depends on how thick you cut it, but honestly even if the cauliflower was in large flowerets it would be just as good. This is definitely going to be a family tradition.
Live the seasoning flavor. A lot like BBQ potato chips. I put them in triple foil instead and it was a little mushy. Will try o my 15 min next time. I cut a large head into 4ths.
Liked the taste but it was difficult to cut the cauliflower in slices. I kep them in flowerets and dipped them in the mixture. I was not able to make them on the grill. the frying pan with a cover worked just as well as the method the recipe suggested.
Simple and yummy. Made it in florettes not slices and grilled in tin foil as another suggested. I prepped it hours before cooking which is the kind of recipe I like when we're grilling with company.
No changes & have made it three times. Next time I will sprinkle parmesian cheese on it before I take off the grill.
Made it it ,loved it!
I bought pre-cut florets and grilled in a grill pan, but followed the recipe ingredients exactly. Delicious. Definitely going into our summer grill rotation.
