A Guide to Cauliflower

Jump to Recipecauliflower on a black background

Cauliflower is having a moment. From cauliflower steaks to whole roasted cauliflower, it has taken the place of meat in a lot of meals. Since cauliflower has such a mellow flavor it can be added to recipes so many different ways.

How to Cook Cauliflower

My favorite way to eat cauliflower it to roast it. You can mix it in with other veggies or just roast it on its own. Since they are mild in flavor they soak up the flavor of whatever sauce you add to it. You can roast it whole or break it up into small florets. Depending on how you are serving it, you can also cut them in slices and served them as cauliflower steaks.

Mashing your cauliflower is a fun way to eat it that is similar to mashed potatoes. Just make sure you boil it long enough to soften the florets so you can easily mash them.

Another great way to use your cauliflower is to rice it. You can shred your cauliflower in a food processor to create a rice like texture. This is a nice low calorie alternative to rice!

If you are looking for another low calorie way to eat you cauliflower, steaming it is a good option. You don’t need any oil for this but it softens the vegetable.

Is cauliflower good for you?

Cauliflower is a part of the brassica family along with broccoli, Brussels sprout, and kale. Since cauliflower is in the brassica family it has many similar benefits as broccoli and kale. Cauliflower is a very low calorie vegetable, but it is packed with vitamins such as Vitamin C, K, B6, and folate. Cauliflower is high in fiber and water which can help aid digestion.
