It's no wonder why cauliflower is a favorite veggie of so many people. It is so versatile, comes in weird colors (purple, yellow, green) and you can make all kinds of dishes with it like pizza, burgers, and these and cauliflower satay skewers. Satay is an Indonesian dish that is traditionally made by marinating meat in an umami sauce, then grilling it until it is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside — and cauliflower gets the job done! This crisp-tender veggie is amazing served with a creamy, spiced peanut sauce and rice on the side.

Cooking Time



For the Satay:

  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 6-8 wooden skewers

For the Marinade:

  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chili flakes
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free miso paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder

For the Peanut Sauce:

  • 5 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion power
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Start by making the marinade. Dissolve the miso paste with a little bit of hot water and mix it together with all the other ingredients.
  2. Next, cut the cauliflower into chunky pieces, make sure they are not too small. Add the cauliflower into a flat ovenproof dish and cover well with the marinade. Put it in the refrigerator and let it soak overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  3. After the cauliflower has been marinated, preheat the oven to 390°F and bake for about 25 minutes. While the cauliflower is in the oven, soak the wooden skewers in water.
  4. Prepare the peanut sauce by dissolving the miso in a tiny bit of hot water and adding it together with all the other ingredients into a saucepan and stir on medium/low heat until everything is well combined.
  5. When the cauliflower comes out of the oven let it cool down a little and assemble onto the skewers. Set your oven to broil and let them grill for around 10 minutes. You can drizzle some of the remaining marinade and some crushed peanut on to the finished skewers. Serve with some wild rice on the side.
