I’m not really a fan of raw cauliflower, but I love to cook with it and put it in salads. Here are six recipe ideas for using cauliflower!
This Cheddar Cauliflower Soup is easy to make and surprisingly rich. Many reviewers suggest breaking up the cooked cauliflower with a potato masher or hand mixer to make the soup creamier. Try adding diced ham or bacon to make it even more filling.
This recipe for Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad is refreshing and so good for you! I like to add sunflower seeds, raisins, and/or dried cranberries, depending on what I have on hand.
Here’s another interesting, highly-rated side dish, Baked Whole Cauliflower. Several reviewers suggest cutting the cauliflower into two or three pieces, steaming it in chicken broth, then proceeding with the rest of the recipe as written.
Roasting cauliflower (and broccoli) is a great way to bring out the natural sweetness in these veggies. This Roasted Cauliflower recipe is simple and flavorful.
Ina Garten’s Cauliflower Gratin makes a rich, cheesy side dish. It’s not the healthiest of recipes, but if you’re looking for a more nutritious replacement for mac and cheese, this is it!
Here’s a tasty main dish recipe that uses cauliflower — “Aloo Gobi,” or Indian Cauliflower and Potatoes. This dish tastes similar to what I’ve had in Indian restaurants. It’s mildly spicy, so if you have young kids, try using only half a serrano pepper or leaving it out completely. Also, if you don’t have cumin seeds on hand, you can use half a teaspoon of ground cumin instead.
