Grilled Cauliflower with Feta

The tiny bits of red bell pepper add a nice sweet crunch to these grilled cauliflower wedges with a feta cheese and olive oil drizzle. Keeping the core of the cauliflower intact helps the wedges stay sturdy while grilling.

Active Time:
20 mins
Total Time:
35 mins


  • 1 large head cauliflower (1 1/4 pounds)

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil plus 1/3 cup, divided

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese

  • ¼ cup finely chopped red bell pepper

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 2 tablespoons drained capers

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high (400-450°F). Remove outer leaves and any woody stem from bottom of cauliflower head. Cut the cauliflower head into quarters through the stem and core; cut each quarter in half again, carefully including enough of the core to hold the wedge together. Brush the wedges with 1 tablespoon oil. Oil the grill grates; grill cauliflower, covered, until lightly charred and tender-crisp, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter and tent with foil. (The cauliflower will soften further as it stands under the foil.)

  2. Stir feta, bell pepper, parsley, capers, salt, the remaining 1/3 cup olive oil and crushed red pepper (if using) together in a small bowl. Spoon over the cauliflower wedges and serve hot or at room temperature.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
