Love cauliflower? Or perhaps you just feel like you should eat it more? Either way, these 23 cauliflower dishes will delight and satisfy.
I was a stubborn child who bought into the idea that vegetables were icky. But I was wrong and my uncle Hugo set out to change my mind. He focused on broccoli and cauliflower and convinced me to try them with cheese sauce.
I was hooked.
And, eventually, I came to love cauliflower — with or without cheese sauce.
These days, I am raising two veggie loving children (how did I get so lucky?!?).
In my kitchen, cauliflower appears on the menu just about every week. We often roast it with just olive oil, salt and pepper. But this versatile vegetable can be used in so many interesting and delightful ways.
These cauliflower dishes are proof positive.
But why should cauliflower be a regular part of your meals? Well, for starters, it’s good for you.
Cauliflower is high in nutrients and fiber. It is also a good source of antioxidants and a low-carb alternative to grains making it a great healthy ingredient to use in your meals. You’ve probably seen many mashed potato dishes that use cauliflower instead of potatoes, but you can do a whole lot more with it.
Moreover, though, it’s readily available during the colder months and so very tasty. Why wouldn’t you want to eat cauliflower dishes lie these?
These are all meals you can cook with cauliflower for your next healthy meal idea and will taste so good, you may not even recognize the cauliflower! Add some your meal plan!
