Sweet, smoky and charred, this Grilled Cauliflower with Blue Cheese Dressing is seasoned with smoked sweet paprika before it hits the grill. Then it’s drizzled with a cool and creamy homemade blue cheese dressing. Serve as a side dish, an appetizer or surprise your vegan friends with a cauliflower steak dinner.

We made this recipe on the Patio Bistro, but you can make it on your grill.


For the Cauliflower

  • 1 large head cauliflower, sliced into 1-inch thick steaks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked sweet paprika

For the Blue Cheese Dressing

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill


Step 1 Of 5
Preheat your grill to 400°F.
In a medium-size bowl, whisk together sour cream, buttermilk, blue cheese, lemon juice, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and dill. Set aside.
Combine olive oil and paprika in a small bowl. Brush the mixture on both sides; then season with salt and pepper.
Place cauliflower steaks onto hot grill grates and cook until tender, about 5 minutes per side.
Remove “steaks” from the grill, cut into large chunks and drizzle with blue cheese dressing for a great side dish. Or serve as an appetizer with dressing on the side for dipping.
