Hi, I like to make a soup with cauliflower. 1 cauliflower 2-3 potatoes, depending on size 1-2 carrots 1 small onion 2 stalks celery salt and pepper to taste small container of low-fat sour cream 4 cups of chicken stock 1 tsp. olive oil water or more chicken stock as needed parsley to garnish I peel and cut the potatoes, celery, and carrots and boil them in chicken stock for about 10-15 min. Chop onion and brown in the oil. Add onions and the cut up cauliflower and cook for about 10 min. Add salt and pepper to taste, add some water or more chicken stock if there is not enough liquid. When it is all done, take the pot of the burner. Add the sour cream and lots of chopped parsley. Do not let the soup boil anymore, or your sour cream will curdle. This recipe is from my mother who was from Poland.

Using the pizza crust recipe, you can also make crispy hashbrowns. Just pan fry instead of bake.

This is the most unusual cauliflower recipe I've come across. It's supposed to create a "healthy" pizza crust. I've made it and cut it into appetizer fingers--pretty taste and unusual.
Cauliflower Pizza Crust (or Appetizer Squares) Crust: 1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower* 1 cup mozzarella, shred 1 egg, beaten 1 tsp dried oregano ½ tsp crushed garlic ½ tsp garlic powder/salt ½-1 tsp red pepper flakes, opt Olive oil (optional) Toppings: Pizza sauce of choice Shredded cheese to taste Precooked toppings *To "rice" the Cauliflower: Remove stems and leaves from cauliflower, and chop florets into chunks. Add to food processor and pulse until it looks like grain. Do not over-do pulse or you will puree it. (Or, grate the head with a cheese grater). Place the raw riced cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl; microwave for 8 minutes. There is no need to add water, as the natural moisture in cauliflower is enough to cook itself. One large head produces about 3 cups of riced cauliflower. Use the remainder to make more pizza crusts immediately, or store in refrigerator up to 1 week. To Make the Pizza Crust: Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Add oregano, crushed garlic and garlic salt, stir. Transfer to a cookie sheet. Cover with waxed paper and use a rolling pin to flatten it to a ¼” thick round. Or use hands to pat out into a 9" round. Optional: Brush olive oil over top of mixture to help with browning. Bake at 450F for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. To finish: To the crust, add sauce, toppings and cheese. Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese melts (3-4 minutes). Makes 1 9” pizza, or 2 servings
Cauliflower Rice! http://www.seletsucre.com/cauliflower-rice / Very easy to make (highly suggest the food processor). I cooked up some onions before hand and then added the cauliflower and let it cook. Though keep an eye on it, 15 minutes might be too long.
The Kitchn is doing a veggie week (they do themes each week) and have a few posts on cauliflower: http://www.thekitchn.com/five-ways-to-ea t-cauliflower-99565 http://www.thekitchn.com/you-must-try-th is-cauliflower-couscous-177844

I have this recipe for Buffalo Cauliflower saved. I have not tried it yet and I haven't worked the nutritional values yet, but based on the ingredients it shouldn't be too bad especially if you're using it as a main. http://www.thecurvycarrot.com/2012/08/18/b uffalo-chicken-vegetarian-style/
1 head cauliflower, cleaned and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 cup buffalo sauce
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
For serving: Bleu cheese dressing, celery, etc.
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, flour, and garlic salt, whisking until mostly smooth (it’s ok if there are a few lumps left).
3. Very gently (cauliflower can be pretty delicate), place the cauliflower in the bowl and lightly toss to completely coat with the buttermilk mixture.
4. Place the cauliflower in a shallow baking dish and bake for about 15-18 minutes or so (watch it, it may start to brown up quickly on you.)
5. Meanwhile, combine the buffalo sauce and the melted butter in a small bowl.
6. Carefully remove the hot cauliflower from the oven and pour the buffalo sauce mixture over it, stirring gently to coat it as best you can.
7. Return the cauliflower to the oven and bake for another 5-8 minutes or so. Let cool slightly and serve immediately.
Grilled cauliflower is amazing. Just spritz with olive oil and throw it on the grill. It's really yummy.

I enjoy roasted cauliflower too , sprayed with olive oil, salt, pepper, fresh parsley or rosemary chopped up.I add some sliced onions halfway thru. it is good as is or you can roll it up in a whole grain flat bread along with other vegetables and low fat mayo for a filling lunch.
Roasted! Cut into medium florets, chop stems, can just spray w/oil, S and P and put in oven 400 for 20-25 minutes, or add more seasonings (cumin, pepper, curry powder, dijon mustard). Mix all together, spread out the cauliflower and cook.
or steam in microwave til pretty soft and throw into a food processor to do a mash with a little lf milk, and whatever seasonings you like.

My favorite is cauliflower hash browns. They really taste like hash browns and they are healthy! Amounts are personal preference, but here's a starting point.
1/2 head cauliflower or a bag of frozen cauliflower, thawed. 1 TBSP olive oil 1 tsp garlic powder 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 red or green pepper, chopped
Chop or slice cauliflower into pieces the size of hash browns. Make sure pieces are dry. Heat oil in pan. Add cauliflower, onion, pepper and garlic powder. Don't stir until starts to brown--crispy like hash browns. Then stir to brown all sides.
1 (10.75 ounce) can Cream of Mushroom Soup -98% Fat Free) 1/2 cup skim milk 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 large head cauliflower cut into florets 1 cup finely grated Swiss cheese 6 sliced cooked and crumbled turkey bacon
Spray a 2-quart casserole with cooking spray. Stir the soup, milk, garlic, cauliflower and half of the cheese in the casserole. Sprinkle with the bacon and remaining cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender and mixture is hot and bubbly

I love this recipe, but is not a main dish.
1) Choose blemish free full head of cauliflower 2) Cut center stem out mostly but leave enough for the florets to stay in the full head shape 3) Steam gently by putting in a pot with 1/4 inch or less of water - too much water leaches the goodness out into the water 4) Meanwhile mix 1 cup of your favorite low fat mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, yogurt or sour cream with about 1 tsp of mustard. (I use mayonnaise and regular mustard, but am going to try others for variety!) 5) Smooth the creamy mixture on top of the 1/2 cooked cauliflower, cover and steam a little longer till fully tender and topping has spread and soaked in a bit. 6) Serve in a heated pretty dish (as a centerpiece?)
Looks impressive and I really enjoy the taste. Be adventurous and make the recipe your own by switching between suggested alternatives !
