Roasted Cauliflower

I think I start every recipe for vegetables from the BBQ the same way, but I'm just going to say it again: When I fire up the BBQ I try to cook a complete meal on it. Vegetables are part of that, but I notice that many people still find it difficult to prepare vegetables on the BBQ. Yes, a corn on the cob is okay and grilling some bell pepper is just fine. But that's about it. And yet the possibilities are endless. A while back I saw a recipe for a cauliflower that is roasted whole. You can also just do it on the BBQ! And it's tasty too!

  • 1 Cauliflower
  • 200 milliliters Greek Yogurt
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 tablespoons Curry Powder
  • 1 Lemon

Overige Benodigdheden:

  • BBQ with Lid
  • Large Pan
  • Aluminum Dripping Pan
  • Grater


  • Take the pan and fill it up with water so that the cauliflower is under water while cooking. Put the pan on the fire and bring the water to a boil. Then put the cauliflower whole in the pan and cook for 10 minutes. Then pour off the hot water and rinse the cauliflower well with cold water.
  • Take a large mixing bowl in which the whole cauliflower will fit generously and put the Greek yogurt in it. Take another bowl and grate the zest of the lemon into it. Set this aside. Then cut the lemon in half and squeeze the lemons over the bowl of yogurt. After this, add the curry powder and mix everything together.
  • Now place the cauliflower in the mixing bowl and spread it well all around with the yogurt mixture. Cover the bowl with some cling film and put the cauliflower away in the fridge.
  • Next, fire up the BBQ, going for indirect heat and a temperature of 200 degrees Celsius (392 Fahrenheit). Put the aluminum drip pan under the grill so you can place the cauliflower above it later.
  • Is the BBQ at temperature? Then remove the cauliflower from the bowl and place it, above the drip pan, on the BBQ grill. Coat the cauliflower one more time with the remaining yogurt mixture and then sprinkle the lemon zest on top. Close the BBQ with the lid and roast the cauliflower for 30 to 40 minutes. The cauliflower may get a nice roasted color, but it should not get too dark.
  • Is the cauliflower ready? Then take it from the BBQ and place it on a serving platter. Slice or portion the cauliflower and serve immediately. Enjoy your meal!
