Crazy Good Miso-Grilled Cauliflower

We can't tell you why exactly, but for whatever reason, we're having a major love affair with cauliflower. The typically white vegetable is of the cabbage variety, and, although it resembles broccoli, it differs enormously in taste. From mashed to gratin, cauliflower is one of those amazingly transformative foods that tastes differently depending on how it's cooked. Below, try our latest favorite cauli-creation, courtesy of The Kitchy Kitchen.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup white miso
3 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons dry sake
3 tablespoons mirin
1 head cauliflower, sliced into one inch thick slices
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
2 tablespoons green onions, thinly sliced
Directions: Combine the miso, sugar, salt, sake, and mirin in a small pot over medium heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Take off heat and cool slightly. Coat the slabs of cauliflower with the miso mixture and marinate for 2 hours.
Meanwhile, heat up a grill to medium heat and grease the grates with a little oil (or a spray). Take the cauliflower out of the marinade and place on the grill.
Grill for 5 minutes a side, covered, or until deep sear marks appear and the cauliflower is tender.
Serve hot and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
