Recipes Content


I was recently introduced to the world of vegetarian "steaks." I am a huge fan.  It all started when a friend made cauliflower steaks for our plant based friends at a barbecue and they quickly became the star of the show.  Charred on the outside and served with a delicious pesto, people were fighting for the last one.  Since then I have been making lots of cauliflower steaks, ususally with Romesco, and lately been venturing out to into other veggie steaks like today's cumin butternut squash steak.  Since peaches are just coming into season, I knew I wanted to add smoky flavors to the squash to pair with the sweetness of the peaches. If you like things spicy, some ancho chili powder would be delicious as well.  From there it's simple.  Grill up the squash, make the peach salsa, and dinner is ready.

  1. Cut the squash carefully into 1/2 inch long pieces. Brush the squash with olive oil. Depending on the size of your squash and the thickness, you should end up with 1-2 "steaks" person.
  2. Combine the cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle over the squash on both sides.
  3. Heat a grill (or grill pan) to medium high heat. Cook the squash for 5-6 minutes per side. Alternatively you can cook it in a skillet the same way. Make sure squash is cooked through.
  4. To make the salsa, toss together the peaches, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over squash. For a fun twist, grill the peaches before making the salsa.
