Every week when I do my big grocery shopping trip cauliflower usually makes its way into my cart. I could eat it everyday— simply seasoned and roasted, cauliflower takes on the flavor of buttery, soft trees. Does that even sound tasty? Nope. But there’s no other way I can describe it. But because my guys need more spice in their lives than Momma does, I’ve been finding ways to jazz up this plain Jane veggie. So with a little help from some of my blogging friends, I’ve pulled together this list of 14 simple cauliflower recipes.
Besides it’s versatility [cauliflower usually takes on the flavor of what you’re cooking it with very well], high-fiber content, and low price, there’s one BIG reason why I love cooking with cauliflower: It’s kid-friendly!
If you don’t have time to read through these recipe suggestions but are interested in making cauliflower a weeknight staple, all you need to know about cooking cauliflower is this:
- Buy a head of cauliflower and cut it into bite-sized pieces
- Toss the pieces with olive oil, salt, pepper [and garlic, parmesan cheese, curry powder, etc. the flavor possibilities are ENDLESS]
- Roast in your oven at 450 for about 20 minutes
And voila! You have some super simple, super tasty cauliflower. Because I’ve just skimmed the pages of WHAT you can do with cauliflower, I’d encourage you to read on and pin, share, or better yet, COOK one of these 14 simple cauliflower recipes!
