Ingredients
  

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 4 slices Jarlsberg Cheese (pre-sliced or slice it yourself)
  • 3 slices bacon cooked crisp and chopped (optional)
  • 2 tbsp basil chopped, fresh

Instructions
 

  • Preheat a grill to medium and brush the grate with oil.
  • Remove the leaves from the cauliflower and cut the stem so that the head will sit flat on a cutting board. Do not cut too much of the stem as it is what holds the steaks together.
  • Set the head stem-side down on a cutting board and slice off about 1/3 off each side. Reserve for another use (see notes). Then slice the center third of the cauliflower into 3 even slices, each about 1 inch thick.
  • Lay the cauliflower steaks flat and brush both sides with oil, then sprinkle each side with the garlic powder, chili powder, and paprika. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Grill the steaks until lightly charred on both sides and become tender, about 5 minutes per side. Use a spatula to help flip the steaks so they don't come apart too much.
  • Top with the cheese, breaking the slices to fit and cover the steaks completely. Turn off the grill and close the lid, letting the steaks remain inside another 2 minutes to melt the cheese.
  • Remove to a platter and sprinkle with bacon, if using, and chopped basil. Serve immediately.
