These Indian-inspired vegetarian burgers are a new way to think about summer grilling. Make extra raita to use as a dip.

Ingredients

Plain lowfat Greek yogurt

½ cup(s)

Cucumber(s)

¼ cup(s), peeled, chopped

Uncooked red onion(s)

¼ cup(s), minced

Cilantro

2 Tbsp, chopped

Ground coriander

¼ tsp

Ground cumin

¼ tsp

Minced garlic

¼ tsp

Minced ginger

¼ tsp

Cayenne pepper

1 pinch

Uncooked cauliflower

1 head(s), small

Cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Olive oil

1 Tbsp

Curry powder

2 tsp

Kosher salt

1 tsp

Thin whole wheat sandwich bread (roll)

4 item(s)

Fresh lemon juice

1 tsp

Lettuce

4 leaf/leaves, large, red leaf variety

Instructions

  1. To make raita, combine yogurt through cayenne in a small bowl; refrigerate until ready to use (can be made up to 1 day ahead).
  2. To make burgers, trim leaves from cauliflower; cut head into quarters, slicing through center/core. Cut each quarter into 2 even thick “steaks,” keeping center core intact.
  3. In a large bowl, combine oil, curry powder, salt and lemon juice; add cauliflower and carefully toss to coat.
  4. Off heat, coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook cauliflower steaks until charred and tender, flipping once, 4-5 minutes per side.
  5. To assemble burgers, place a leaf lettuce on bottom of each sandwich thin; top each with 2 cauliflower steaks, 3 Tbsp raita and sandwich top. Serve immediately.
  6. Serving size: 1 burger
