need some inspired, healthy cauliflower ideas, beyond cauliflower cheese, roasted cauliflower and aloo gobi...

Bored with my usual approaches. Especially interested in recipes without cheese/cream. Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. I've been making cauliflower puree lately. I too am tired of roasted cauliflower. What I love about it is that it makes a nice bed for the protein and veg.
    I steam large florets, stems and all. When tender, I transfer into a food processor and season with salt, pepper, paprika, granulated garlic (add whatever you want here to season) and then add chicken stock and a touch of cream or half and half.
    Puree away.

    1. Cauliflower steaks , cauliflower soup, paprikash all wonderful.

        what did you do with cauliflower steaks?

      2. I don't use a recipe but like stir fried cauliflower and pork. It's something along these lines:


        1. Whole Foods had a shredded cauliflower salad with curry...you could probably season it other ways. It was shredded very very fine. Anyone done this?

          1. cauliflower pizza crust. this one has chevre in it, but there are vegan versions floating around the internet. i haven't tried it, so i can't tell you how it tastes!

                I'm not into veganism or raw foods, but that website has some great ideas for getting a ton more vegetables into our diet, and substituting for some of the carbs that DH can't have with his diabetes! Thanks for the link.
