This is a basic grilled recipe for cauliflower. Its nicely charred and has a bite. If using fresh herbs use 1 tablespoon to 1 teaspoon dried.

We liked this grilled cauliflower recipe. This is the first time we tried preparing it on the grill. We used a serrano pepper and curry powder for the spices. We found the cauliflower to be a bit dry, so next time DH would cut it into smaller pieces to speed the cooking and to get more "char." We are a big fan of your 16 cloves of garlic cauliflower recipe and we found we prefer that one to the grilled one. Thanks, Rita.
