16 Cauliflower Recipes That Should Bloom in Your Kitchen


Let’s be honest with each other:

Cauliflower probably isn’t the first vegetable you think to use with dinner. It may not even be the second or third vegetable.

But should it be, that’s the question?

Give cauliflower a few minutes, however. Consider the following recipes and you’ll see how it can be put to some seriously delicious use…

  1. Indian Cauliflower Pizza Recipe
    • Indian Pizza with Roasted Cauliflower
    • Here is a truth about me: I will put just about anything on a pizza crust. Seriously, can you go wrong with pizza? I don’t think so. Okay, maybe I went a little wrong the time I tried to make a pizza out of leftover mashed potatoes and cheddar cheese (let us never speak of …

    • I know what you’re thinking: there is no way that mashed cauliflower tastes like an identical copy of mashed potatoes. And mostly, you’re right. But what you’re missing is that this mashed cauliflower is better than mashed potatoes. I speak the truth! Mashed potatoes can be so one-dimensional. They taste like creamy butter. I’m not …
  4. Cauliflower Tater Tot Casserole Recipe
    • Cauliflower Tater Tot Casserole Photo
    • Growing up, my nickname was “Tater-tot” Partially because I was really tiny (not much changed. WAH) but mostly because I couldn’t pronounce “Taylor,” so I called myself “Tate.” Of course, that snowballed into “tater-tot,” and then it just kind of stuck. Forever. Because of this, I always felt just a wee bit strange about eating …

  8. Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe

    • One of my goals this year is to really take a hard look at some of the foods I am eating and make them a bit healthier. One of those foods is pizza.  Of course, just like many of us, pizza is one of my favorites, and a great meal for the whole family. This past …
  9. Roasted Cauliflower Soup Recipe
    • Roasted Cauliflower Soup Photo
    • A couple of weeks ago, my wife went out of town on a work trip. Now I love having her here, but there is something totally awesome about having the house all to yourself for a few days, too. Tell me you know the feeling! I was tempted to sit in the basement and play …
  10. Cauliflower Fritters Recipe
    • Cauliflower Fritters Photo
    • This recipe? It’s the epitome of “I don’t even know who I am anymore and I think I am having an early life crisis.” It’s not a beef recipe. In fact, it’s not even a chicken breast recipe. That’s right. It’s VEGAN. Like, NO MEAT. And I like it. And so did the hubs. And so did …
  11. Grilled Stuffed Zucchini with Shrimp Recipe
    • Grilled Stuffed Zucchini with Shrimp Photo
    • Juicy, little bursts of sort of sweet and justalittlebit spicy goodness on a stick, grilled to perfectly, smoky perfection. These are the things make my <3 beat.

    • Paleo Indian Chicken Kebabs Photo
    • It’s the dinner that has, like, ALL the components, but it’s in your-face-in-30-mins-weeknight-friendly food. Um what else do you need to know? Hokay, besides the fact that there’s creamy saucy goodness in the form of the spectacularly nutty cashew coconut cream. Which is really just 2 ingredients (coconut milk and cashews) which you put into …

    • Buffalo. Hold the chicken. Did that get your attention? You’re all like WHATHEWHAT how can you have something buffalo without the chicken? It’s like having peanut butter…without the jelly. Umm.
